SHOP WITH A COP
Wayne Lodge #14, Local Fraternal Order of Police, is now underway with its Annual Community Benefit Drive “SHOP WITH A COP” for children in need. “The purpose of ‘SHOP WITH A COP’ is to aid area families experiencing extreme financial problems due to recent job layoffs, sickness, crime, or fire victims or people who are only working at part-time or minimum wage jobs,” said current Lodge President and veteran Fort Wayne Police Officer, Phil Geller.
F.O.P. #14 will allow each child from these unfortunate families to shop for warm winter clothing at the two Fort Wayne WAL-MART stores this December. The children are accompanied on their shopping spree by active duty and retired Police Officers from Fort Wayne, New Haven, and Allen County. Officer Geller said, “The idea behind the program is not only to help these deserving families, but to meet and get to know the Police Officers of our community. We want the kids to know that we are not just a bunch of meanies who write traffic tickets and arrest people. We are in need of donations. Please send in your most generous donation to Wayne Lodge #14, Fraternal Order of Police, 111 Three Rivers East, Fort Wayne, IN 46802 or call 424-6600 for more information,”

Shakespeare’s classic comedy gets a Rock ‘n Roll twist as FPT sets the play in 1960s America. This comedy explores how falling in love can transform one into an ass (literally for one of the characters). The madness of a midsummer night when love is in the air prompts Puck’s famous line, “. . . what fools these mortals be.” Shakespeare’s fantasy is one of his most produced works and will delight audiences of all ages.
