Our Birthday Party Rescue program ends today. This started as a simple way to connect with our community during a strange time. We’ve loved celebrating nearly 300 birthdays with you this month. We typically participate in many community events that stopped due to COVID-19. This program, done by firefighters on their own time, has allowed us to continue to connect with everyone despite the pandemic. Thank you for sharing your photos and stories of your birthday visits, we’ve really enjoyed it. We will be sharing a few of these stories over the next few days. If you have any photos or stories that you haven’t already shared with us, please contact us at charitable@iaff4550.ca #langley #langleybc #birthdaypartryrescue #community #inthistogether
