Alberni students enjoy birthday party for heritage trucks

Students from Maquinna Elementary celebrated at Industrial Heritage Centre

Students from Maquinna Elementary School held a birthday party for a pair of heritage trucks at the Industrial Heritage Society’s building in Port Alberni last week. They celebrated the 1928 “Chev” fire truck and 1938 “Mack” with a party, cupcakes decorated like truck tires and activities.

This is the second birthday party for the heritage trucks: students from École Alberni Elementary School’s French Immersion programs also celebrated at the end of May.
