Community shares cookies and cocoa with police officers

Wednesday, January 2, 2019 by PAUL CMIL Special to The Press in Local News

The last community and police gathering for 2018 was Cookies and Cocoa with the Cops, held Dec. 20, 2018, in the community room of the municipal complex, 90 Bridge St.

These sessions with the police are sponsored by Holy Trinity Lutheran Church.

The community events are designed to get members of the community to meet police officers on an informal basis. Police Chief Douglas Kish persuaded Santa Claus and one of his “elves” to come to the party.

Holy Trinity is planning to sponsor additional events in 2019. In fact, a gathering is already scheduled for Jan. 24 at Blocker’s Coffeehouse, 309 Front St.
