A little bit of Christmas was delivered Tuesday to children attending the Cloverdale Head Start program on State Road 42 approximately one mile west of US 231.
Sergeant Richard Myers and Trooper John Myers from the Putnamville State Police Post provided a pizza party and delivered a toy, toboggan hat and gloves to each of the 17 boys and girls enrolled in Head Start. The Indiana State Police Alliance and Cops for Kids provided the money for the gifts and pizza while troopers and their families shopped for the toys and wrapped them.
