Living & Learning Christ's Love
Pastor Gregory Frey, GFrey@StPaulsDouglassville.com
With Mrs. Matosky's leadership, St. Paul's Lutheran Active Teens went to
the Amity Township Police Station September 11.
Chief Kensey spent an hour and a half with SPLAT, speaking with them about the responsibilities of police officers and giving them a tour of the building, the two holding cells, the taser training area, and a squad car.
He was just great.
Three other Police Officers: O'Rourke, Coe, and Hedgepeth also stopped by and spoke with our group, answering questions.
After that, SPLAT got to work, pulling weeds around the entire building and planting annuals around the sign on Weavertown Road.
This was SPLAT's way of honoring the first responders who made the ultimate sacrifice on 9/11, as well as those who continue to serve our community day and night.
After watering the new plants, Mrs. Matosky led the group in a moment of silence and a prayer near the Vietnam and Korean War Memorials.
