Birthdays in the age of coronavirus

Zander Mackey celebrates a brithday

A local mom said police cars and a parade of friends helped her son celebrate his birthday over the weekend.

“The Los Alamitos Police were kind enough to join in by driving three police cars by our home to personally wish our son, 11-year-old Zander Mackey a very happy birthday,” said Zander’s mom Tracy.

She said they had about 20 friends drive to wish their son a happy birthday, and it was great fun. Nevertheless, she said the police cars were the highlight.

“They were very kind to take time out of their day to wish an 11yr old a happy birthday,” she said, adding that “my son loved it so much, he wants a birthday like this again next year.” And so, life goes on in the pandemic.
