The Community Law Enforcement Appreciation Committee Inc (CLEAC), a S C Eleemosynary For for Profit Corporation and a pending IRS 501c3 applicant, is hosting a FREE Cook-Out called “Connecting Cops-Kids-Community” at the Market Common Grand Park (Shelters A &B) Saturday November 19, 2016 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.

The event is a joint effort by CLEAC and the Myrtle Beach and Surfside Beach Police Departments. Officers from Horry County Police Department, North Myrtle Beach PD and the Horry County Sheriff’s Office will also participate in the activities.

The aim of the CLEAC, is to bring together the Communities of the Grand Strand, Police and Kids to establish a rapport of trust, understanding and communication and to foster a better relationship between these groups.

In conjunction with this aim, a FREE  Cook-Out and games, sports, and other activities will allow the children and community members to mingle with police officers in casual settings.

The goal is to get community members to understand police officers are normal people and to establish a bond of friendship, understanding and trust between community members and the police.

Children needing transportation to the event may be signed up by their parents for bus rides at either Pepper Geddings Recreation Center or Mary C. Canty Recreation Center in Myrtle Beach. Parents must sign permission slips at either of these locations for their children to ride the bus and participate in the day.

Please come out and support the community efforts of the CLEAC–bring your Children, friends neighbors, and family, everyone is welcome…

This is the second such event held by CLEAC. A similar event was held in North Myrtle Beach in July with hundreds of children, parents and friends attending.

Donations are most welcome to help defray some of the costs of T-Shirts, and other expenses associated with the FREE Cook-Out…  Our Thanks

Bennie Swans Vice Chair  and Jon e Bonsignor, Vice Chair,

Activities Chairman Judge Dennis Salerno
