On July 29, the Kiwanis Club of Mt. Juliet joined forces with the Mt. Juliet Police Explorers to clean up the landscaping around the entry to the Mt. Juliet Middle School baseball field. The Kiwanis Club provided the landscaping material and the Police Explorers put in a lot of hard work planting flowers.
The Mt. Juliet Police Explorers are a group of 12 teenagers who are receiving an education about police work with real-life scenarios. They participate in city special events, ride-a-longs and community service work alongside actual Mt. Juliet Police Department officers. One goal of the Mt. Juliet Explorer Program is to give these teenagers an opportunity to be leaders in the community. The Kiwanis Club of Mt. Juliet is focused on improving thelives of children in the communities they serve, and they enjoyed this opportunity to assist the Explorers in their endeavors.
After working to beautify the community, the Kiwanis Club and the Police Explorers enjoyed lunch catered by Missy Johnson at Mirko Pasta at the new Mt. Juliet Police Headquarters. After lunch, Chief James Hambrick, also a Kiwanian, provided a tour of the new facility for all the participants.
