Monday August 6th was unbearably hot but that didn't stop a determined crew of local law enforcement personnel from serving dinner to a full restaurant at Pat's Pizza in Ellsworth for Tip-A-Cop with all the proceeds going to the Maine Special Olympics.

My wife Bonnie and I went down, and had an excellent meal. Retiring Detective Dotty Small was our waitress and she was moving so fast and doing such a great job, you would have thought that she was auditioning for a job post-Ellsworth PD.

Combined tips were $1605.74 and once Pat's makes their usual donation, the total collected should be over $2000

Thanks to everyone for their generosity, to Pat's Pizza for their donations and staff for mentoring the rookie servers and the law enforcement volunteers who graciously gave of their time.
