Monday, December 22, 2008, Cherry Hill East and West students and staff filled the Crown Plaza Hotel’s ballroom, hosting the annual Fraternal Order of Police holiday party for ten local schools of handicap children.  After weeks of preparation, including wrapping boxes, collecting stuffed animals, and making posters, the party once again yielded positive results. 

“It ran just as smoothly as it runs every year,” said Charles Davis, staff coordinator of FOP.  “I think everyone really gets something out of this.”

Due to the recent renovations of the hotel’s ballroom, students were unable to tape posters to the walls.  However, this factor did not stop the enthusiastic students from decorating the ballroom to the best of their abilities.  The new addition to this year’s decorations included present boxes lining the walls along the floor, as well as posters strung from one end of the room to the other, both enhancing the holiday spirit of the room.  

Overall, the 2008 FOP holiday party was a success.
