On July 16, American Heritage Girls (AHG) Troop CA0319 showed their support for the police of the nation by visiting the Milpitas Police Department. The girls brought homemade cards for the officers along with some donuts and told them how much their service is appreciated.
Seven-year-old Therese stated, “I hope the policeman liked the poem I wrote.”
The officers were grateful for the visit. They introduced the girls to everyone there, gave them a tour, and answered all the girls’ questions. When asked how she enjoyed the visit, five year-old Josie exclaimed, “I really liked meeting the police dog!”
