HOLMDEL, N.J. - Holmdel Swim Club members and guests were brimming with excitement as the time had finally come...
There was a big build up to Superhero Day this week as the children of the swim club made their own capes, masks and shields in preparation for the big Superhero Parade that took place at 2 PM today.
From 1 PM to 3 PM, the Holmdel Swim Club welcomed our Community Superheroes, who came in their firetrucks, police vehicles and First Aid rigs. Our vintage Holmdel Police car was there as well. All members of the swim club were invited to come check out the vehicles, speak to the superheroes themselves and were encouraged to ask them anything! They also were able to sit in the cars & trucks, try on the gear, check out the ambulance and even got a big cooling off from the firehose.
Holmdel Swim Club Activities Coordinator Debbie Brew led the superhero parade. She was followed by many superhero children wearing their capes and masks and waving to the crowd.
Then, out of the clear blue sky, like a bolt of lightning - Community Superheroes Jason Dulow from Holmdel Fire & Rescue #2 & Holmdel Police Officer Christopher Cherney came on the scene. After reviewing the situation and making sure everything was ok - they also marched in the parade!
It was a wonderful day celebrating for all of the superheroes of the community. They work hard, every day, to help all of us and children and adults at the club showed their appreciation and thanks.
