Reading Patrol to Celebrate Armed Forces Day on May 17

  • Monday, May 12, 2014

Last Saturday, the Mount Pleasant Police Department Reading Patrol met at the Mount Pleasant Senior Center to celebrate Mother’s Day and honor the bond between children, mothers and grandmothers. Next week, they will meet at Mount Pleasant Towne Centre’s Barnes & Noble on Saturday May 17, from 11 a.m. to noon, to celebrate Armed Forces Day.

“The Reading Patrol is a program that builds a foundation of knowledge and trust for our youth and strengthens their relationship with the police department,” said Police Chief Carl Ritchie. “Reading and literacy are key factors in school retention and graduation rates and the department believes that it is never too early to develop a lifelong love of reading. Our talented officers are building bonds with the youth of our community one book at a time. We want to preserve and build on that positive sentiment.”

“The Reading Patrol stays active and engaged with events and celebrations happening within the community and the nation,” said Sgt. Mauldin. “This week we will celebrate Armed Forces Day and we invite parents and their children to attend our reading and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.”
