Next Saturday, May 19th take your children/grandchildren to the North Orange Library in Apopka to meet Apopka police officers for cookies and milk and stories read by an APD officer. This is a time for children to interact with local police officers in a fun and informative way. Sponsored by North Orange Library, Apopka Police Department, and Apopka McDonald’s on Main Street.
The North Orange County Branch Library is at 1211 East Semoran Boulevard in Apopka.
The Cookies and Milk with a Cop is an initiative started by Officer Andrew Raphael of the Winter Garden Police Department last year. The goal is to bring kids and Cops together in a fun and non-traditional environment that builds trust and makes friends.
Cookies and Milk with a Cop is a joint venture between the Apopka Police Department, the Apopka Main Street McDonald’s restaurant and the North Orange Branch Library in Apopka.
- The APD provides a police officer for reading to the children.
- McDonald’s provides the cookies and milk.
- The Apopka Library provides a comfortable setting for the event.
The events are held at 11 AM on the 3rd Saturday of each month.
