Candy Cane Run rolls through Murrayville in Langley

Annual food bank fundraiser by firefighters

It was an unexpected, but not unpleasant, turn of events.

Devon Levere, 10, was out for a walk with his new puppy Chloe, an 11-month old Labrador, when he encountered some firefighters handing out candy.

It was the annual Candy Cane run by Hall 6 firefighters in Murrayville, with two trucks making a slow circuit through the area to distribute holiday treats and collect donations for the Langley food bank.

Firefighter Tim Warkentin did the honours with the holiday treat.

On Sunday night, firefighters from Hall 8 in Walnut Grove will collecting food and cash donations for the Langley food bank with their annual caroling parade that starts at 6 p.m. at the fire hall on 208th Street and 96th Avenue.
