2nd Annual Brian Adams Fish with a Cop is set for May
As a sign of good events to come, the Bristol Borough Police Benevolent Association is bringing back an event for the children of Bristol Borough; Fishing with a Cop.
Acting Police Sgt Chuck Palmer, who also serves at vice president of the BBPBA said the event is free to children of the borough when he appeared at Monday nights meeting seeking the boroughs support.
The event, now named in memoriam of popular Mill Street business owner Brian Adams of Trainpops Attic, who passed away in 2021 after a long bout with cancer.
Palmer said the union renamed the event in Adams honor because of his tireless dedication to helping the union bring events to the borough’s children.
Adams not only donated his services and funds to past events, said Palmer, he went “above and beyond” the call when asked.
Residents 12 and under can attend the May 21st event at the Bristol Lagoon which will also include prizes, snacks, a DJ and face painting during the two-hour hook’em if you can event with members of the police department.
After his passing, Adams’ family donated about $5000.00 worth of fishing equipment and supplies the union purchased for $500. The result is the BBPBA being able to supply fishing gear to borough children for free, Palmer told council.
Eastward Councilwoman Lorriane Cullen said she attended the 2020 event.
It was great turnout and “everybody you had there was wonderful. We really have to also thank the King George they were great also, she said.
The King George will cater the outing for free, Palmer said
Registration begins Tuesday March 8, from 8 am to 4 pm daily, at Police Headquarters, 250 Pond Street and runs until Friday, April 1.
The 2021 Fish with a Cop event was cancelled due to COVID concerns and now hopefully that’s all behind us.
