Dodgeball Drop In
Community members were invited to the Recreation Centre on the evening of March 17 to play dodgeball with members of the Sioux Lookout OPP at a Dodgeball Drop In event hosted by the Sioux Lookout OPP Diversity and Inclusion Club.
Entry was a donation to the Sioux Lookout Food Bank.
Special Constable Stephanie Carter shared, “Our Diversity and Inclusion Club is basically to build awareness within the community. We figured this was the perfect opportunity to invite the public out, play some games, have some fun, and get to know some of the people that are in our community and serving our town.”
“There’s a bunch of us on this committee. We’re just starting getting into the role of doing more public activities, so today it’s dodgeball, at the end of the month we’ll be doing a Coffee with Cops outside the Red Brick Café where people can come and just talk to us as special constables about the different roles that we hold at the police station.”
“The diversity and inclusion club is basically just recognizing people in our community, in our detachment, and the differences that we have and just engaging people to come out,” Carter said of the new committee.
