Altoona (WQOW) — Music filled the air at Grace Adult Care Services in Altoona Friday afternoon.
The event was the first sing-along the center hosted in partnership with the Altoona Police Department. The center’s director, Bethany Jacobson-Flieger told News 18, usually, the only way they interact with officers is if there is a crisis-like situation, but a fun event helps bring residents closer.
“A chance to do something social, a chance to just involve a member of the community into our activities once in a while, I thought was just a great idea,” Jacobson-Flieger said.
When the Altoona Police Department got the call to participate, Officer Timothy Peterson said he couldn’t refuse.
“Altoona’s a close-knit community, we like to, as a police department, get involved in the community, meet everybody, let them know we’re here for them, and especially music helps, everybody likes music and it’s a good way to connect,” Peterson said.
Jacobson-Flieger also said nothing official is in the works right now for another community sing-along, but the center is definitely open to the idea.
