PHILIPSBURG – On Sunday, June 19, which was Father’s Day, the Philipsburg Pioneers Pathfinders club, which is a department of the Seventh Day Adventist Church who work specifically with cultural, social and religious education of children and adolescents ages 10 to 15 years old, visited Police Headquarters in Philipsburg.
Part of their requirements involve giving back to the community and showing appreciation to others. To show their appreciation and gratitude to “the men and women in blue,” the Pathfinders served all officers on duty for the morning-shift, with a healthy pre-packed breakfast, consisting of Johnny cakes, vegetarian sausages and soya, different type of fruits, porridge and bush tea.
Jacky Barry, who is a counselor with the Pathfinders Club, stated on behalf of the other leaders that they realize that Police Force has been through a lot of difficulties lately, and were more than happy to bring some cheer to them.
Police Spokesman Chief Inspector Ricardo Henson, on behalf of the Chief of Police and the management team, accepted this wonderful gesture and thanked the Pathfinders Club for having them in their minds and hearts. The Inspector also encouraged the youngsters to continue to be an example to others, in particular the youth, by occupying themselves with positive community-oriented projects.
