Deputy Morales had routinely responded to emergency calls in Stamping Ground.

Morales, 28, was shot September 11 during an attempt to arrest a suspected bank robber. The injury left Morales paralyzed from the waist down.

“That date changed everyone in Scott County, both in 2001 and 2018. We [Stamping Ground] will keep rallying for Jaime’s recovery”, said Stamping Ground Police Chief Roger Nowakowski, Stamping Ground Police Department.

The Deputy was equally honored by the invitation for him to participate in Stamping Ground’s celebration.

The holiday parade will be 7p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8 in downtown Stamping Ground. There is no entry fee to participate. Lineup of parade participants begins at 6:30 at Burch St and Main with judging for cash prizes in three categories: best overall entry, best entry with kids, and best entry by a business.

There will also be a tree lighting occurring adjacent to the school. Santa will meet children at the Ruritan Club, 3345 Main St., at the parade’s conclusion.
