A special delivery from the police

Fraternal Or­der of Po­lice Lodge 5 pres­id­ent John McNesby and at­tor­ney James J. Binns last week led a cara­van of po­lice vehicles and mo­tor­cycles that de­livered full-course Thanks­giv­ing din­ners to more than a dozen fam­il­ies of of­ficers killed or ser­i­ously in­jured in the line of duty.

The FOP and Binns have been donat­ing din­ners to fam­il­ies dur­ing the East­er, Thanks­giv­ing and Christ­mas hol­i­days since 2008.

The cara­van con­sists of po­lice per­son­nel from the tri-state area.

De­liv­er­ies were made on Nov. 20 and 21. On the first day, fol­low­ing break­fast at Caf&ea­cute; La Maude in North­ern Liber­ties, vis­its were made to the fam­il­ies of fallen po­lice of­ficers Steph­en Liczb­in­ski and Gary Sker­ski of Phil­adelphia, Joseph L. Szczerba of New Castle County (Del.) and Chris Jones of Middletown, Bucks County.

The second day star­ted with a break­fast for the wid­ows, par­ents and riders at Sunnybrook Golf Club in Ply­mouth Meet­ing.

De­liv­er­ies were then made to the fam­il­ies of fallen of­ficers Brad Fox of Ply­mouth Town­ship and John Pawlowski, Bri­an Lorenzo, Chuck Cas­sidy, Timothy Simpson, Isa­bel Naz­ario, Patrick Mc­Don­ald, An­drew Stack­wicz and Moses Walk­er of Phil­adelphia. The group also stopped at the Bustleton home of John Marynow­itz, who was crit­ic­ally in­jured in a 1993 shoot­ing that claimed the life of his part­ner, Robert Hayes. ••
