COMMUNITY BRIEFS: Birthday party for Ace, Lily and Iris show

Community news includes a weekend community birthday party for the police mascot, and a flower show at Salvation Army Citadel

Police mascot hosts birthday party

The Saanich Police Department’s mascot Ace is turning three years old – that’s 21 in dog years, which explains why he’s so tall – and he’s having a community birthday party to celebrate.

Join Ace for cake, games, prizes, music and inflatable events on Saturday (June 14) at Beckwith Park. The birthday party happens from 10 a.m. to noon.

In lieu of birthday gifts, donations will be accepted at the event for the Children’s Health Foundation and Jeneece Place.
