Police Enjoy ‘Blue Lunch Specials’
The sight of a police car in front of a school can be unsettling -- but not this week.
Monday kicked off our “Blue Lunch Special” campaign -- with members of the Manchester Police Department invited to enjoy a free lunch in any of our school cafeterias all this week, in recognition of the difficult and often thankless work they do.
Chief Marc Montminy visited Robertson School -- where he was joined by Superintendent Matt Geary and Mary Jane Pazda, a member of the Manchester Board of Education).
Others who took advantage of the offer were Officer Brittney Cohen (who went to Waddell, the elementary school she once attended) and Officer Pete Celio (who ate lunch with students at Keeney).
You can read about it on our website or in a Hartford Courant article. I plan to have lunch with Police Chief Mark Montminy on Monday at Robertson School to kick off our “Blue Lunch Special” campaign.
As a demonstration of our appreciation for the great work that the Manchester Police Department does, we are offering free meals to MPD officers in any of our school cafeterias during the week of Dec. 7-11.
We are calling this our “Blue Lunch Special.”
To kick off the event, Superintendent Matt Geary has invited Police Chief Mark Montminy to lunch on Monday. They’ll be dining in the Robertson cafeteria.
