Unity in the Community
August 13, 2016 @ 6:00 pm
The Weatherford Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association will host Unity In The Community, a program designed to bring unity between the citizens of the community and their first responders, from 6-9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13 at Heritage Park in Weatherford.
First responders are defined as fire, police, Texas DPS, sheriff, and EMS employees.
Speakers from the first responders will address current issues they face each day, and their wants and needs for each of their departments. Members of the community will have an opportunity to ask questions and jump in to help. The event will also have Unity in the Community event t-shirts starting at $5. In addition, 300 blue porch light bulbs will be given out (one per address), along with other items, entertainment, and bounce houses for the kids.
The atmosphere will be family and kid friendly, with no alcohol, and a up close look at emergency vehicles.
Food trucks will be on hand for those wishing to purchase food or snacks. The community is invited to bring lawn chairs or blankets and get to know their first responders. The event and entertainment are free.
