This morning 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.

  1. I am up early this morning. I got up at four to watch the hoopla of the royal wedding. Gayle King is doing a great job covering the royal wedding. I hate the microphones I see the media people are wearing, I kept looking at Gayle thinking she had a big round black mole on her face, but it was her microphone near her mouth…..ha ha ha! At least today Gayle’s hat matches, as yesterday her hat and dress was a mismatch. That castle is something else! I love Harry. I hope ” Ms. Sparkle” doesn’t take Harry to the cleaners (financially, as he refused to sign a pre-nup agreement) and I hope she doesn’t break his heart somehow……I see Oprah Winfrey there, she has a nice hat, but she looks like a heavy weight once again. The diets must be off right now. I understand the minister that marries them is a “wild one” with his preaching, so I want to see this! Megan has arrived and she looks so thin! I think the marriage ceremony won’t start until about seven o’clock. I love to hear the English people talk, love their accents. Some of the spectators there along the route have said it is freezing, I don’t know, but I don’t see any heavy coats. I even see some sleeveless dresses on some of the women. With these fancy hats everywhere, it is like the Kentucky Derby all over once again.

  2. Megan’s wedding dress was not quite what I expected. A little too “plain” for my taste, but she picked out what she wanted. Sleek, was the word, the fashion experts stated. Megan’s mother’s outfit looked nice, and she seemed so emotional. Prince Charles looks like time is not on his side…lol He has really aged! One thing about it, Prince Charles and Camilla definitely look so right and suited for each other. I will always be wowed, the most, by the memory of seeing Princess Diana getting married and her beautiful gorgeous wedding gown with that absolutely glowing tiara she wore. The minister wasn’t “wild” in his sermon, today, as they had said he would be, I thought it was fantastic, and how he carried on and on about the power of love. He is SO RIGHT about the power of love, nothing can compare to the power of love, not money, or anything else in this world. Right on! As for the celebrities in attendance, wow, George Clooney’s wife, Amal, looked stunning! That yellow mustard colored dress was a knock out on her. I love that color myself, but can hardly ever find anything in that color. What was with Victoria Beckham, as she looked mad as could be! Guess she wasn’t the center of attention, was what she was mad about…lol…. All these violins…..the old stuffy queen looked pretty nice in her green and purple outfit, and her old man, Prince Philip looked darn great to be 96 years old and recovering from surgery. I would just love to ride around in one of those English motor cars, they are so cool……….can’t say I appreciated the fact that Harry’s military uniform that he married in, was sewn from doe’s skin. Oh and the royal guard’s black hats are made from the fur of black bears ….ugh. I wonder what in the world, Megan’s ex-husband is thinking on this day in history? He is probably thinking, man, she really upgraded….lol Now, the horse drawn carriage ride. I bet Harry and Megan are thinking, somebody slap me, can’t be this happy!

  3. I listened to the menu for the royal wedding and I was a bit taken back to hear cracklings on the menu. I thought that was chittlins but I was wrong. It is nothing more than plain old fried pork rinds….ha! And people made fun of Mama June and Sugar Bear’s redneck wedding for serving cheese doodles?….also on the royal list is free range chicken, some kind of beef from South Africa, waygu or something like that, quail eggs, lemon verbena something another, and that elderberry flavored lemon looking wedding cake. I was not impressed with that wedding cake. If that is supposed to serve the 600 guests, it ain’t happening. It was not very pretty, not very big, and was all over the place on several plates, and if that sucker does have 44 pounds of butter in it like reported, the vow “to death do we part” may come much sooner than expected”…..kidding of course, but 44 pounds of butter in that small of a wedding cake? The guests must be eating pure butter with a tad little bit of cake, lol Royal weddings of the past served seal, venison, and peacock on the menu….ugh…..Gayle King switched to another hat, a big green one that looked like a giant lily pad on top her head. I kept waiting for a frog to jump on it…..LOL Wow, this is all craziness, but fun. This talk about the wedding cake, has got me craving some Italian Wedding Cake, big time, as that is the best, I love Italian wedding cake….yum! And Joey is watching Dog Tales now on tv.
