The Coconut Grove Police Junior Olympics took place at the Esther Armbrister Park. Fifth graders from three Grove schools participated. They were from Frances S. Tucker Elementary, Coconut Grove Elementary and George Washington Carver Elementary.
The kids all had a ball. It was very reminiscent of when I was in school, many of the adults present told me the same thing. Our local police held the event and they did a first class job and they were all so proud to be there. So many of them were present including Chief of Police Miguel Exposito and our local Commander Richard Gentry, who sponsored the whole thing, along with our own Grove beat cops.
Officer Delrish Moss emceed the event. It started with a color guard, who marched out and led the Pledge of Allegiance and Rev. Clayton L. Hodges who came in all the way from Naples, FL to bless the proceedings with a little prayer.
