Thanksgiving spirits were high in Brockport on Nov. 16, 2017 as the Brockport Police Department and Wegmans staff handed out free turkeys at a traffic safety checkpoint on Main Street.
“This is a perfect opportunity to give back to our community that has backed us year after year," said Lieutenant Mark Cuzzupoli. "We are reminding motorists to drive safely and hope everybody has a happy and safe start to their holiday season."
Forty turkeys were gifted to surprised motorists - some of whom gladly accepted them and others who asked they be paid forward to the next car stopped.
Half of the turkeys were purchased by the Brockport Police Department's union The Stetson Club and Brockport Chief of Police Daniel Varrenti. The other half were donated by Wegmans.
“Last year’s checkpoint was such a huge success that the members of the Stetson Club had no reservations scheduling this event for a second year in a row," said Officer Josh Sime, president of the Stetson Club. "Interaction at this level is a rewarding experience for both the motorists and police officers.”
