Taylor firefighters held a successful Mother’s Day Breakfast and Brunch on Sunday, serving 220 breakfasts and raising approximately $1,600.

The 40-year tradition was missed in 2020 due to the pandemic, but a COVID-safe drive thru event was held at the fire hall.

The proceeds will be split between the BC Firefighter’s Burn fund and a local charity. Firefighters will make a decision on which local charity to support at its association meeting next week.

“The support for the fundraiser was amazing and it was a great to connect with the community even in this unique way," said Fire Chief Steve Byford.
