of SMCC and through the S.M.Y.L.E. (St. Michaels Youth
and Law Enforcement) took eight children and their
parents to the Wilderness Presidential Resort in
Spotsylvania, VA over a the long Easter holiday weekend.
A reward program was intiated that allowed children to
earn the opportunity to go with their families to the resort
by completing community service projects or participating
in drug and alcohol prevention classes. Chief Smith and
Trish Payne intend to offer 3 - 4 trips per year to alternating
groups of local children and their families.
