POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 37 PANS in the community Truro Police Servicecontinued A group of children will have a chance for an early Christmas of sorts during an activity-filled day at the Rath-Eastlink Community Centre (RECC) hosted by the Holiday Heroes. From 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Dec. 22, the children will have full access to the rink, the climbing wall, the swimming pool and all else the RECC has to offer. “Last year was good and this year it is going to be better,”said event co-coordinator Const. Scott Milbury of Truro Police Service. Holidays Heroes is a project started last year by Truro police in partnership with a number of local organizations that assist with the planning of the event and coordination of donation efforts. Last year’s event was held at the Truro high school but with the RECC stepping up as a partner this year, there will be much more for the children to participate in, Milbury said. The event at the RECC is by invitation only, with names being provided by various schools and other community organizations. The effort has received financial contributions along with sweaters, hand-knit mittens and other clothing items. “We don’t want to limit anybody,”Milbury said. And while all donations are welcomed, he suggested financial contributions are the best way to help out, because they can be used to make purchases for items that have been identified as needs. But absolutely all donations are welcomed, he added. “If anybody wants to make donations, by all means,” Milbury said. “We don’t want to limit anybody.” Anyone who wants to contribute to the cause can contact Milbury by calling 902-895-5351 or by email at: (mailto: By Harry Sullivan As originally published, Truro Daily News, December 19, 2018 Truro’s Holiday Heroes go to work Police and partners work to bring a day of fun to deserving children The Truro Police Service’s Holiday Heroes will be hosting this year’s children’s pre-Christmas activities at the Rath-Eastlink Community Centre, which has stepped up as yet another community partner for the event.
