Cops & Kids Christmas Event Cancelled
We realize it is way past the date we normally are in full gear getting together with the community and businesses asking for assistance with our annual Cops & Kids Christmas event. We have been waiting and hoping for the pandemic to end or get to the point we would not be endangering the health of our community. But sadly it does not appear as though that will happen soon enough for the annual event to occur.
We understand this year has been anything but normal. A lot of things have been changed and a lot of traditions broken due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Cops & Kids Christmas event is not unaffected by this pandemic. For the safety of our citizens and children, we will not be able to have this year’s Cops & Kids Christmas event. Not only would we be placing the officers, volunteers, children and families at risk of exposure, we would be setting an example to the community to disregard safe shopping practices set forth to reduce the spread of this virus.
Believe me when I say we are as disappointed as you are because there are a lot of people that love being involved in putting smiles on kids and families faces.
I believe we will get through this season and look forward to a better 2021 by keeping our Community strong and healthy.
When you must go out in public; Wear your mask. Remember to wash your hands often. Keep social distancing practices.
