White Rock RCMP help youngster celebrate birthday

Police-themed birthday package was auctioned for Peace Arch Elementary

The White Rock RCMP taped off a Kent Street home Saturday morning for a youngster’s birthday party.

The detachment offered a police-themed birthday package to Peace Arch Elementary to use as a silent auction item. The silent auction item was purchased by Donny Williams’ parents.

Proceeds are to be used to build a new playground for the school.

The six-year-old “constable” celebrated his birthday, which was May 22, by being sworn in as an RCMP officer for the day by White Rock RCMP Const. Chantal Sears.

The kids participated in a series of activities, including fingerprinting and a boot camp.
