St. Joseph firefighters surprise kids with birthday drive-bys


St. Joseph, Ill. (WCIA)

Celebrating your eighth birthday in the middle of a pandemic can be tough. However, the smile Stella Spady had on her face Saturday might say otherwise.

Firefighters at St. Joseph- Stanton Fire Protection District surprised the eight-year-old by driving by her home this weekend yelling, “Happy Birthday Stella!” from a firetruck with sirens blaring and lights flashing.

The birthday drive-by was arranged by Spady’s mom, Melissa, who came across this recent Facebook post from the fire department:
