Hey kids, would you like to bowl with a police officer this summer? Would you like to learn important safety tips at one of our summer camps? The Mount Pleasant Police Department is kicking off two new summer programs to foster and promote positive relationships with the youth of the community and you are invited.
“We are launching two public engagement initiatives this summer that are sure to please our younger population,” said Police Chief Carl Ritchie. “Our Blue Light Bowling Program will give children the opportunity to bowl with an officer for two hours. Each child will receive a complimentary tee-shirt, pizza and soda. Our Summer Safety Camp will provide our young adventurers with all the skills and tools they need to have a safe and great summer. Best of all, these programs are free! Sign up early to reserve a place for your child in our summer programs!”
Blue Light Bowling is June 25 (ages 11-14), July 9 (ages 5-10), July 23 (ages 11-14) and August 6, (ages 5-10) from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (check-in begins at 9:30 a.m.). The event takes place at Sparians Bowling Alley at 613 Johnnie Dodds Blvd. in Mount Pleasant.
The event is free to Mount Pleasant residents. The deadline to Apply is May 1 at noon.
