With the Stay at Home order poised to relax across the state, the Village of Oswego ‘care’-avan is heading out for one final trip this Friday, May 29, to connect with Oswego residents and show support for our community and its essential workers.

This week, the route heads to three different neighborhoods: Southbury, Prescott Mill, and Heritage of Oswego, passing by the senior residences at The Reserve at Oswego. The caravan will take off at 1 p.m. from Traughber Middle School, and includes vehicles from the Village of Oswego, Oswego Township, Oswego School District 308, and the Oswego Fire Protection District.

Residents are advised to watch from their own front porches and yards, stand at least six feet apart from others, and avoid gathering in groups to watch the caravan, which can jeopardize public health.

Residents can take additional steps to protect themselves, their neighbors, and our essential workers by wearing face masks and continuing to regularly wash their hands and routinely disinfect surfaces.
