Stirling Public School hosts Law Enforcement Torch Run

Stirling - Students at Stirling Public School were out in support of the Special Olympics on their final day of classes last week as local officials arrived for the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run.

Heasman was joined by other law enforcement and corrections officers, including Stirling-Rawdon Police Chief Dario Cecchin, as well as Special Olympian and this year’s torch-bearer Cole Woods, to promote the upcoming games.
