CPD lose trophy in heated basketball game

The CPF sponsored a basketball game between Cleveland Police 5th District and the 8th graders from St Francis School. It was a close game against some really old police officers (okay, okay, not THAT old), but in the end the kids came away with the trophy!

This was a great game inspired by some lunch conversation between officers and students and an essay contest sponsored by CPF. Everyone had a great time as family, students, and staff were on hand to watch an entertaining contest. Thanks to all the participants and to Principal Embacher for allowing us to get to know you and your kids!! Congrats St Francis!!
