FORT WAYNE Ind. (Fort Wayne's NBC) - A drive-by parade to say "Hi!" was held by the Fort Wayne Corvette Club Thursday night at Byron Health Center.

Members showed off their classic cars, while entertaining the residents and caregivers at Byron Health.  

Several members came out to the parade, while one member came with the new 2020 corvette.  

The club would typically set up shop at the center and have the residents walk through a car show. But, the pandemic put the brakes on that and they went with the parade instead. 

Gary Grant, a member of the club says this is his passion and he wanted to make the residents of Byron Health smile. 

“We want to make sure that the folks that are housed here, feel that they're still cared about.” Grant said. “So, by doing this ... it entitles us too help give out a lending hand to these folks." 

One resident at Byron Health Center is Ed Sink, who loves cars. So, this was right up his ally.  

“Just to see the people waving at you and everything it's just cool I like it" Sink said.   

Grant also tells ABC21, the Fort Wayne Corvette Club has done this type of parade for many other organizations this year. 

Grant says when members drive by and say hi, it shows the residents that they count.
