Parksville Fire Department Makes Memories
Posted: Apr 28, 2020

Less than two weeks ago, the Parksville Volunteer Fire Department offered to help residents celebrate a milestone event in a special way. In the past ten days, the department has helped to create 29 drive-by memories with many more scheduled for residents in the Parksville Fire Protection Area.  

 So far, there have been drive-bys for birthdays between the ages of two and 104, a 50th wedding anniversary drive-by for Rick and Mary Jane, a last day at work for Pamela and a volunteer appreciation drive-by at the Salvation Army food bank and soup kitchen. As well, there was a drive-by to celebrate Dr Molly's graduation, a new veterinarian who recently completed eight years of schooling. [pictures included with release] 

Parksville members are thrilled to be part of these celebrations and look forward to many more. Here are the birthdays:
