First Annual Guns n' Hoses Charity Softball Game 2015 for DARE program

The Knox County Sheriff's Office, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #700 and the Cushing Fire Department would like to announce the First Annual Guns n' Hoses Charity Softball game for the Knox County DARE program. The game will be held at the Rockland Elks Field on Rankin Street in Rockland, on September 5, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. This game is free to all. Donations will be accepted.

The Knox County DARE program is in the Washington, Appleton, Union, Hope, Warren, Thomaston, Saint George, Friendship, and Owls Head Schools. As part of the 10-week program, students who successfully graduate from the program have a culmination event at a beach which consists of a BBQ and prizes for DARE participation. Students also receive prizes for writing the best essay in their class, and one student receives a prize for writing the best essay in all of Knox County. This event is not possible without generous donations from the community. This softball game is being held with the hopes of offsetting costs associated with the DARE program.

Firefighters and Law Enforcement Officers from Knox County will battle it out on the field to determine who will win the inaugural event. Prior to, and after the game, children can take a tour of a police car and/or fire truck, and the whole family can watch a friendly, but competitive game of softball. Seating is limited, but the lawn is not! Bring a chair or a blanket to sit on and enjoy the game. Concessions will be available.

Jerrad Dinsmore of the Cushing Fire Department is the organizer of the event. If you are unable to make it out to the game but would like to donate, contact Jerrad at the Cushing Fire Department 38 Cross Road in Cushing 04563, or at 207-691-5555.
