A special celebration was held on Thursday, November 20 at the Fatima Family Center, 6600 Lexington Avenue as the Third District Police Community Relations Committee held its annual awards reception. The room was full as Boy Scout Troop #931 marched in to present the colors and led the audience in the Pledge of Allegiance.

In attendance were Mayor Frank Jackson, Safety Director Mike McGrath, Chief Calvin Williams, and other city officials, and dignitaries. Mr. Harry Boomer of WOIO Channel 19 and WUAB Channel 43 officiated the event and assisted in handing out awards to both police officers, and citizens.

Also in attendance was the Cleveland Police Foundation’s Community Partnership Coordinator Bob Guttu who in company with Mayor Jackson and Chief Williams presented the CPF’s awards for outstanding community service to PO Rick Connolly, Mr. Dwayne Malone, and Ms. Judy Varne on behalf of the Goodrich- Gannet Neighborhood Center.
