Local Heroes event success

Emergency vehicles including a public education fire truck, an ambulance, a 1951 antique ambulance, and an RCMP Ford Crown Victoria were parked in the centre of the Langley Events Centre’s arena bowl ice surface Monday night, for a great cause. The We Salute You – Local Heroes Night public skate benefited KidSport Langley, noted event organizer Stacey Bridal, a student from Langara College currently interning at the LEC.  Attendance was counted at 126, and Bridal said the “best part of the night was the great turnout of our local heroes.” She added, “The number of volunteers we had from the Township of Langley Fire Department, the Langley detachment of the RCMP, and the Township of Langley BC Ambulance Service giving us their time and showing their support of the event was amazing. Their involvement and interactions with the community that came to skate was really great to see.”
