Thirty-six children, their families, KSP troopers, KSP CVE officers, and KSP families met at the Area 2 Fire & Rescue Training Center in Princeton. Pizza was provided to everyone courtesy of the Princeton Wal-Mart. Drinks were donated by the KSPPA District 2. The Sonic Drive-In of Princeton treated everyone to ice cream.
