G Gathering
        Inaugural Fun Fest soars!

Inaugural Fun Fest soars!



Plenty of people gathered on a windy but wonderful Saturday for the 1st annual Fall Fun Fest. The festivities were held at the Chesapeake City Park and were sponsored by Undersheriff Jim O'Sullivan, with the proceeds going to his non-profit youth organization, Children Today Leaders Tomorrow. The entertainment was provided by a variety of volunteers from both the community and the Sheriff's office, including helicopter rides from Lt. Col. Micheal Koch and Col. Kevin C. Rychik, family entertainment from Sgt. David Rosado, a car show that was made possible by Pepper Kight, and many helping hands with games and food.
