Students in all grade levels who live in Vine Grove are in for a birthday surprise from the city beginning next week.

Mayor Pam Ogden said because of school and business closures from COVID-19, the Vine Grove Fire Department and Vine Grove Police Department will replicate a Radcliff program and offer a happy birthday greeting to children who live and go to school in Vine Grove.

Children will be greeted with the playing of “Happy Birthday” over speakers.

The program begins Monday and will run through April 20 when schools currently are scheduled to return to session.

The children must live in Vine Grove and attend either Vine Grove Elementary School, J.T. Alton Middle School, North Middle School or North Hardin Christian School.

If a child’s birthday falls in the date range, parents may submit their child’s information to and be sure to include the child’s name, school they attend, address, birth date, age and a telephone number to contact a parent or guardian.

If a child is home schooled, also include that information, Ogden said.

The city is requesting residents provide firefighters and police officers at least 24 hours notice and they will attempt to make contact prior to leaving for the residence.

Most runs will take place between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Residents are advised that by necessity, fire runs and police emergencies will take priority over birthday greetings.
