Cinnaminson Township encourages our residents to participate in Project Blue Light this holiday season.
In 1988, C.O.P.S. received a letter from Mrs. Dolly Craig of Philadelphia, PA, stating she’d be putting blue lights in her window that holiday season to remember her son-in-law, Danny Gleason, who was killed in the line of duty in 1986, and her daughter Pam, Danny’s widow, who was killed in an auto accident earlier that year. She thought others might like to share her idea. Dolly’s idea is now her legacy. We shared it with others, and nationwide thousands of blue lights shine in support of law enforcement during the holidays.
The color blue is a symbol of peace. Put blue lights in your window, decorate your tree in blue, trim the outside of your home or the police station in blue lights. Cinnaminson, let our blue lights shine in support of law enforcement this season.You will be sending a dual message that you support America’s peacekeepers and that you hope the coming year will be a year of peace.
We encourage our residents to keep their blue lights up until after the New Year starts on January 1st to show our township wide support of Law Enforcement with hope for a peaceful New Year. Thank you and Merry Christmas.
PS: We recommend battery operated candle lights for safety or some other form of a blue light. Safety first!
