TRURO, N.S. – Some of Catherine Camp­bell’s work will con­tinue, as chil­dren and po­lice of­fi­cers gather for a fun event in her memory.

The third an­nual Constable Catherine Camp­bell Kids Aware­ness Day will be held at Truro Civic Square May 18.

“We’re just car­ry­ing on Catherine’s memory,” said her mother, Su­san Camp­bell. “She wanted kids to be com­fort­able with po­lice in uni­form and she al­ways had time to talk to kids. I feel it’s im­por­tant to get the mes­sage out.”

She and her hus­band, Dwight, will be at the event, which will in­clude face paint­ing, bouncy houses, food, and tours of the po­lice sta­tion. Chil­dren will also be able to ex­plore some of the po­lice, EHS and town ve­hi­cles. A colour­ing con­test, for Grade 2 stu­dents at Truro schools, is be­ing held and the win­ners will be an­nounced dur­ing the day.

The event will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 18.
