To show support at a time when police officers across the nation are under increased criticism and scrutiny, as well as suffering high-profile losses, a group of women visited Wilton police headquarters on Friday, Sept. 4, to show their support with sandwiches, a cake and prayer.
Six members of the prayer group Morning Meditations with Sisters in Community — Adrienne Reedy, Marianne Gustafson, Lynnette Bascom, Anne Swartout, and Michele Sanzaro — dropped by around lunchtime with a feast of sandwiches and cake for the officers on duty, who were working overtime because of the holiday weekend.
“We’re here to support you,” Reedy told eight officers who gathered in the station break room. “With everything that has been going on … we wanted to show you as a community we appreciate what you do. We are going to pray for you.”
