Most of the the participants wore masks, and Kim Snow of Kimz Angels, the nonprofit that helps the homeless, arrived masked, gloved and wearing a hazmat suit.

“We love you,” Snow yelled, waving at people in the windows, who waved back.

Health Care worker Angela Hay, a Murrayville resident, arrived with a double-sided sign of support with encouraging messages on both sides.

“My neighbour’s mother is here and I understand how stressful it can be,” Hay commented.

Steve Elliot, better known as tribute performer “Elvis Elite,” drove his pink Cadillac in from Chilliwack to perform in the parking lot.

Elliot, who is also a painter, presented the Lodge with a portrait of a masked health care worker.

Also present was Langley Lodge board of directors president Deborah Silvester, who said demonstrations of support and appreciation are welcomed at the Lodge.

“It makes a difference,” Silvester commented .

Langley City councillor Rudy Storteboom said it was important to let the Lodge know “that our hearts and minds stay with them.”

Earlier in the week, on Tuesday, June 2 at 7 p.m., postal workers staged a drive-by show of support, making a slow pass through the parking lot with their horns honking. More than 20 vehicles took part.

The Langley non-profit care home has reported 23 deaths connected to the virus since the outbreak began on April 28 – the most deaths in any seniors care facility in B.C. since the pandemic was declared in early March.
