ORLAND, Calif. - There was a surprise parade held in Orland Friday. It was a parade of first responders.
The celebration was for 33-year-old Andrew King. He’s loved by many in the city. He’s been a volunteer fireman and worked as a VIP volunteer with the Orland Police Department.
Friday both of the organizations he volunteered for organized a parade of first responders who drove by his home, making lots of noise and showing lots of loving care for their friend. You see, Andrew King needed cheering up. He was diagnosed a month ago with stage four cancer.
King had another surprise. He became an honorary police officer yesterday as part of the festivities.
