Take your kids to the North Orange Library in Apopka Saturday, December 17th from 10:30am - 11:30am to meet Apopka Police Officers for cookies and milk (& a story). This is a time for children to interact with local police officers in a fun and informative environment.
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 first Cookies and Milk event was a success with about 75 in attendance, according to McDonald's spokesperson, Debra White. "I believe we had 46 children and 30 parents, plus officers and press. We are very happy with the first event - I'm sure numbers will grow as they have in Winter Garden."
The co-sponsors are planning to hold monthly Cookies and Milk with a Cop gatherings.
The events are held at 10:30 AM on the 3rd Saturday of each month.
