Freeport sends birthday wishes


Despite the pandemic, Freeporters came out in a caravan to wish Kaitlyn Llompart a happy 13th birthday on April 3. 

Kaitlyn’s mother, Kimberly Creed Llompart, organized the event on Facebook and was taken aback by how many people in the local community arrived with decorative signs to wish her daughter a happy birthday. 

“It shows that tough times can bring out the best in our community,” Kimberly said. “We were moved by everyone who decided to come.” 

Along with the caravan of well-wishers, Kaitlyn was also able to celebrate with her friends through the Zoom chatroom app as they enjoyed pre-prepared party snacks and activities online.
