OnBase with GRPD
August 14th, 2015
Our final OnBase with GRPD games of the summer took place on August 13th. We are so thankful to all the police officers who took this progressive approach to reaching our Club members through the game of baseball and developing an even stronger community relationship with our Club parents.
"Other than what was taking place on the field, one of my favorite moments came when a mother of one of our kids yelled to one of the police officers 'Jeremy, come here we need to talk' in a very fun and laughing tone to discuss the score of the game," said Executive Director Rick Huisman. "The fact that she knew the police officer’s first name and that she felt comfortable enough to call him over and have fun with the rest of the parents in the stands was perfect."
We can't wait for more opportunities to stay partnered up with the Grand Rapids Police Department. They make such a difference in the lives of our youth.
