Greenburgh PBA hosts circus for kids

Posted: Updated:
GREENBURGH -

Many kids were smiling this morning as the Greenburgh Police Benevolent Association (PBA) held its annual children's circus at the John A. Coleman School.

Police joined in on the festivities and were a part of the fun as kids enjoyed magic tricks, daring acts, and tours of police cruisers. After the show, the members of the PBA went to each and every classroom to hand out ice cream and T-shirts to all the students

The PBA circus has been thrilling kids for 83 years, including nearly the last 30 years at the school which helps children with special needs. School officials say the kids can't wait for the event.  "It's the highlight of the summer for the children. As you can see, it's something we really look forward to, and it's so nice to have our police officers from the community be a part of what the Coleman school does for our very special children,” says  Executive Director Maureen Tompkiel.

The PBA was also able to give iPads and outdoor equipment to the school thanks to donations from Greenburgh residents and businesses .
