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:
Ray 78 Ryan 2 Jaya 2
Carter 11 Luke 8 Anne 104
Maya 9 Bev 78 Louise 85
Don 78 Trenton 4 Ryder 12
Luke 3 Teresa 76 May 6
Edith 80 Doreen 85 Oliver 10
Bob 76 Addy 4 Miki 55

Drive-bys of a fire truck for a milestone memory can be booked a first-come, first-serve basis until May 31. Drive-bys could be subject to delay should fire/rescue incidents occur during your time.
