Memorial Church of the Brethren in Martinsburg hosted a community and family event on July 22 to honor and appreciate the Martinsburg Borough Police Department.

The event included tours of a police cruiser, an ambulance and a fire truck. Representatives from the police department talked with children and adults about the current events going on around the country. There was a bounce house, games and prizes, snacks and much more for children and adults to enjoy.

Church officials thanked the community and the more than 21 businesses and individuals who helped make the event a great success. They also thanked the many volunteers for their work and dedication to help make the event a reality. First responders and borough officials were thanked for their support of the community.
