Police Adventure Camp!

 

The 4th Police Adventure Camp at Viers Mill Elementary School focused on teaching incoming 4th, 5th, and 6th graders skills like decision making, how to refuse drugs and alcohol, and resisting peer pressure. 

"It started out with 30 at-risk youth. They came in, we talked about making good decisions: resisting drugs, alcohol and gangs and gave them skills to be better students," said Officer Amy Daum.

The camp is a partnership between Montgomery County Police Department, Montgomery County Public Schools and Linkages to Learning. The Linkages to Learning Program assists students and their families with services to help children be successful in school, at home, and in the community.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s Breast Cancer Fundraiser

 

Wednesday night, hundreds of Audrey Hepburn or Holly Golightly look-alikes (for those of you familiar with the 1961 movie) dressed in black cocktail dresses and tiaras and paraded the streets of downtown Frederick for the 2nd Annual Breakfast at Tiffany’s Breast Cancer Fundraiser.

The ladies enjoyed a cocktail reception followed by a private screening of the Breakfast At Tiffany’s movie. Additionally, there was a contest for the best Holly Golightly look-alike and an attempt to be in the Guinness World Record’s for the largest gathering of Holly Golightly look-alikes.

Frederick Mayor, Randy McClement, was an honored guest and one of the only few men in attendance.

“This is a wonderful event. Anytime we get the opportunity to put Frederick on the map, we love it!” said Mayor McClement.
