2017 Respect For Law and Movie Night
Friday August 4, 2017
Celery Flats, Portage MI
BOCK is proud to co-sponsor the third annual Respect for Law Movie Night in conjunction with the Portage Youth Advisory Committee. The event will feature public safety demonstrations from 7:00-9:00 pm and will be followed by the movie Moana around 9:15 pm. This event is free to the public and with popcorn and water provided.
This event is designed to let families come together and talk with Public Safety Officers in a friendly and educational way. Among the demonstrations will be:
- Kalamazoo County Office of Emergency Management
- Kalamazoo County SWAT
- Kalamazoo Public Safety Bomb Squad
- Life EMS
- Portage Bicycle Officer and K-9 unit
- Portage Community Officers
- Portage Fire Department
- Pride Care Ambulance
Each demonstration allows children to meet the first responders, learn about the job, and explore how some of the equipment is used. There is an interactive game that the children may participate in if they choose.
This year we have added the food truck Smoked Down BBQ so attendees may purchase food..
Support your Club by sharing this information with your friends, neighbors, churches, and any other places you feel would be interested.
We hope to see you and your family at Celery Flats on August 4th.
