Arbutus Sanford turned 90 on Monday, and Saturday afternoon her daughter, Bonnie Gouvisis, worked to have a parade of people drive by and wish her a happy birthday. Units from Oak Grove Volunteer Fire Department, Colonial Beach Volunteer Fire Department and Colonial Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad joined a myriad of cars and people in parading past Sanford’s Euclid Avenue home.
Sanford has been a member of the CBVFD Auxiliary, and CBVRS Auxiliary for numerous years. She worked in Colonial Beach Public Schools and is a beloved member off the community.
She was joined by her family, socially distanced, to take a picture after the parade of love went by her home.
