The exuberant voices of children filled the toy section at the Walmart Supercenter in Jamestown Saturday, one of the side-effects of the annual Cops and Kids event.

The North Dakota Fraternal Order of Police James-Valley Regional Lodge No. 4 hosts the annual event. Members of the FOP Lodge No. 4 raise funds year round and donations are received from private individuals and from businesses.

Officer Jason Prochnow, NDFOP Lodge No. 4 treasurer, said the lodge had 24 children to help with Cops and Kids this year. He said enough money was raised so each child had $100 to spend on gifts.

The complete story will be in Monday’s The Jamestown Sun.
