Cops and Creemees program rewards good behavior
BRISTOL — Bristol’s Cops and Creemees program is being sponsored again this year by the Masons of Libanus Lodge 47 F & AM, located at 2 Elm St in Bristol.
The Bristol Police Department will be watching for the youth of Bristol to be practicing safe riding habits. If they see a young person that does something that exemplifies safe riding skills, they will stop that youth and commend them for practicing proper bicycle habits. They will then be “cited” and presented with a ticket that can be redeemed at Queen Bee’s Snack Bar on Hardscrabble Road for a free Creemee.
Kim Jewell, the owner of Queen Bee’s, is extremely civic minded and believes in giving back to the community as much as she can. She has deeply discounted the cost of the Creemees, which the Masons will pay her for the redeemed “Tickets”.
