A week before the Twin Lakes’ annual ‘Shop with a Hero’ event, Twin Lakes police officer Kevin Saunders said he finds the greatest joy arriving to Lakewood and Randall schools, where officials inform students they will go on a shopping spree.

The shopping spree, which happened Saturday at the Lake Geneva Walmart, had 26 area students participate with members of the Twin Lakes Police Department, Twin Lakes Fire Department and Rescue Squad along with the Town of Randall Fire Department.

Saunders, who noted Saturday’s event marked the 15th year, believes it allows officials an opportunity meet with students in a positive setting.

‘Shop with a Hero’ is this week’s lead story in The Report.
