VIDEO: A drive-by birthday party for a man of joy


Vancouver man and his family celebrate with parade of buses, cop cars and friends 

VANCOUVER — Aaron Robinson loves everyone. 

He lives with his mom Vickie and his dad Rod in Vancouver. He just celebrated his 40th birthday. Even though Aaron lives every day with Down Syndrome, he has never once let it dampen his zeal for loving others. 

That love was reciprocated this past weekend, as his family, friends and community came out in a COVID-era appropriate drive-by birthday party, just for him.

With the help of Kindness 911, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, the Marine Corps Bikers, and CVAN, Aaron was treated to a magnificent display of what he believes are some of the coolest people ever. 

“We had more than we thought we would have, but we just put the word out to do a drive-by and got so many involved that we kinda let everyone run with it,” Rod said. “Plus he loves cops, firemen, bus drivers, etc, etc, etc.”

Aaron wanted to say thank you to everyone who came to his birthday party, thank you to all the officers and drivers who stopped by and God bless America.
