For the last three years the Fire Department has beaten the Police Department in the Banana Split Eating Contest. This has been a difficult contest for the police, as the fire personnel have a natural advantage. While officers are use to sparse meals in a cruiser, it is rumored that the fire department personnel enjoy luxurious meals in front of a large screen television. While we cannot comment on the veracity of that rumor, we have noticed that they seem much more accustomed to eating ice cream then we are.
This year though, the Police Department was ready!
The Police Department had a new lineup, with our newest officer as the anchor. Officer Reese Southard volunteered to participate, and managed to finish off the last of his ice cream before his counterpart at the FD table could do so. The Police team was co-captained by Sergeants Costa and Marcum.
