Volunteers from the Racine Police Department and the greater Racine community accompanied a group of kids age nine to 15 to Lake Beulah in East Troy for the 20th Annual Cops ‘n Kids fishing trip.
Our friends at We Are Racine attended the event, and it looks like everyone had a blast fishing, hanging out, petting animals and just being together.
All the gear needed for the day is supplied by the volunteers – boats, bait, gear and food – and the event is open to the first 100 kids who sign up to attend.
“This is a great community event that wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of local business and philanthropic organizations. The kids (had) a great time today and our investment of time in their lives is invaluable,” stated RPD Chief Art Howell in a written release. “Not only (do) the children benefiting from this event, but our officers and volunteers do as well.”
