On Tuesday, July 4th, a day that is traditionally celebrating our independence and enjoying time with family, the Chambers County Sheriff's Department was busy connecting with the community as they passed out frozen pop-cycles and ice-cold water. Chambers County Sheriff Jeff Nelson and Major T.J. Wood left out at approximately 10:30 am EST. with coolers of frozen treats on a hot and humid 4th of July.
They were estimated frozen pop-cycles as well as ice-cold water as they departed from the Captain Jason Fuller Training Facility on Phillips Road in Huguley.
"This is what it is all about and this is something I was committed to doing while campaigning. This is our community and we want to keep that dialogue between the sheriff's department and the community open", said Nelson.
The community was appreciative of the generosity displayed by the Chambers County Sheriff's Department and thanked them.
One of those residents the department greeted was a couple who were cutting down limbs from a previous storm. The couple were given ice cold water which was a pleasant surprise.
Just after noon EST, the rain made it's way in shortening the trip. Nelson and Wood are already planning another pop-cycle run shortly.
