A big group of Mid Michigan law enforcement officers and firefighters made sure a boy's birthday party was extra special. The effort started when 13-year-old Johnny of Genesee County sent a letter to emergency responders, inviting them to his party. An employee at ELGA Credit Union helped get the word out after hearing Johnny was looking for a new bike for his birthday, along with a winter coat. Representatives from 12 different departments caravaned to the celebration over the weekend, including Michigan State Police and the Genesee County Sheriff's Department. The party included a cake, a new bike, and a winter coat. Organizers said the effort was a big success, giving Johnny an unforgettable birthday.
