The Week At Midway - Personals and Comments
I want to remind everyone that the Versailles Police Department Citizen Police Academy will be starting their next class Tuesday, Aug. 28.
The classes will last eight weeks and will start at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. The classes are open to anyone who lives or works in Woodford County. The Citizens Police Academy is designed to help people understand the role of a police officer in the community and allow participants to meet and interact with some of the law enforcement officials who protect our county.
Asst. Chief Mike Murray has arranged for the classes to be held at the Midway Branch Library this session. He would like to see more Midway people take advantage of this opportunity.
Three Midway residents attended the last session in Versailles, and I happen to be one of the attendees. I can say that these classes are very informative, and the question and answer sessions can be quite lively. These classes definitely won’t make you a police officer, but they will change the way you may view officers as they perform their duties.
The first session of the class allows people to introduce themselves and they are given a short history of the Versailles Police Department.
There will be a few minutes set aside for a short presentation on the history of the Midway Police Department.
If you want to participate, you can pick up your application at the Midway City Hall. If you have any questions about this program, you can contact Asst. Chief (soon to be Chief) Mike Murray at (859) 509-1272.
Anyone interested in becoming a Boy Scout? Midway Christian Church is starting a Boy Scout Troop. For more information, call (859) 227-1715.
The Woodford County Survivors of Suicide Support Group will meet Sunday, Aug. 19, at 6:30 p.m. at 126 South Turner Street.
Bluegrass Jam and Ice Cream Social is Saturday, Aug. 18, from 6 to 8 p.m. Bring an instrument or just come enjoy the music and ice cream.
Mark your calendars for Aug. 24, when the Renaissance-hosted Midsummer Nights in Midway will hold its last block party of the year.
There’ll be lots of fun for everyone. Vendors will be set up at 6 p.m. and the Feral Cats will be back from 7 to 10 with a new set list. Bring your chairs and dancing shoes!
