NORWICH Two members of the Norwich Police Department took some time during Relay For Life to help children paint shirts and interact with the community.
Officer Alicia Woodard and Adam Francis were on duty the night of Relay For Life and stopped down to check it out.
I have been fortunate enough to be on duty the last few years while Relay for Life is going on. I think it's a great organization with so many caring, loving people and the overwhelming support we receive is truly amazing. I was honored when Officer Woodard and I were asked to lead during the remembrance lap, it's a very moving and powerful lap, said Francis.
PO Francis has done this event for the last couple years this was my first one, said Woodard. Everyone there was very welcoming of both of us being there and thought it was wonderful we both supported the event. While the luminary part of the event was going, which is a part of the event where all of the people who have lost the fight of cancer names are read. This is also a quiet time to reflect on their lives and all of the wonderful memories of them.
