The Northville Township Police and Fire departments, as well Clerk Roger Lundberg volunteered last week for the two-day "Ruffled Up in Grief" children's camp for New Hope Center for Grief Support at Maybury Farm. This free children's grief camp is for those ages 5-14 who have lost a loved one. The record-setting attendees learned coping skills from all who were present, including the animals at Maybury Farm who also grieve for their own offspring, a farm spokesperson said. Members of the Northville Township Fire Department dropped by and gently sprayed the attendees to cool off in the summer heat.
Personnel from police department in Bloomfield Township, Birmingham, City of Northville and the Michigan State Police also volunteered during the event.
