Law Enforcement Summer Youth Program

The Fredericksburg Police Department has wrapped up its annual Summer Youth Program for 2019.  We had a great summer this year and hope that our kids in the community enjoyed it as much as we did.  
     We would like to take the time to thank all those that have made this program successful.  Our Police Department staff, Sheriff’s Office staff, Police Volunteers, and Juvenile Probation Officer Ron Sutton, they cannot be thanked enough for their time and efforts.  
     Typically, we start and finish every summer with a pool day at Lady Bird Johnson Park.  The lifeguards were courteous and attentive to the safety of our children, and they really did a great job.  The kids also watched two movies this year, and we would like to thank Fritztown Cinema and their staff.
     The kids visited our local museums and learned about pioneer days, how to rope, and life as a Cowboy and Texas Ranger, thanks to Marvin Schroeder and his staff at Fort Martin Scott.  They also learned about the history of World War II at the National Museum of the Pacific War Combat Zone.  Thank you Brian Degner, and your staff for taking the time to teach our children the history of our Country.  
     One afternoon our kids spent the day fishing as well as shooting bows and arrows. Thank you Game Warden Sam Harris with Texas Parks and Wildlife, who has been providing this day for our kids, for many years. We would also like to thank James Neutze with Bow Pros in addition to the 4-H Archery Club for lending us the archery equipment, Nelson Fluitt for lending us the hay bales to shoot at and Steve Nelson for teaching the kids how to shoot archery equipment.  
     This summer was fantastic, but went by so fast.  We look forward to doing this again next summer and hope to see you there.
