"Blue Plate" Lunches?

What is the "Blue Plate" lunch all about?


Sgt. Tuckey of the Lapeer State Police Post and Turrill Elementary have teamed together to set up various dates that a Trooper(s) comes to our school to have lunch with our students in an effort to build and foster positive relationships between our youth and law enforcement.


The next date is Wednesday, Feb 28th.
