Photos: Parade for 100-Year Old Taylor Mill Man

Homer Groger was scheduled to be the grand marshal of the City of Covington Memorial Day parade, but it was canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Instead, as the Taylor Mill man turned 100 over the weekend, he received a parade of his own.

People drove up to his home and thanked him for his service in World War II, and to wish him a happy birthday.

Mayor Dan Bell offered a proclamation in Groger's honor.

Groger has four children, six grandchildren, twelve great-grant children, and one great-great-grandchild.

He would have worn a sash during the Covington parade, so he was presented with that, too, in Taylor Mill over the weekend.
