Holden police buy ice cream for students, teachers
HOLDEN, Maine (WABI) – What better way to cap off the week than with free ice cream?
Holden Police bought ice cream for more than 100 students and teachers at Holden Elementary as a fun way to welcome the new school year.
Officers took the children to the nearby Holden a Kone to enjoy their milkshakes.
We’ll let the kids tell you more about their big day.
“We are down here because the police are welcoming new second graders,” said one student.
“And we have ice cream and we are just enjoying it,” said another student.
“Well, I hope they brush their teeth after that,” said Sheriff Chris Greely, Holden Police Department. “But, with that, I hope they realize that the police department enjoys interacting with them in a fun way.” “It’s not just about putting someone in jail or writing your father a speeding ticket or whatever. We care about the community, and that’s true.”
Some might call it a cherry after a hard week’s work.
