About 40 members of the Kalkaska police, sheriff's department, fire department, Michigan State Police, EMS and others were invited to the event, which featured food from nearby Family Fare and Northland Foods. "We're so pleased with the level of professionalism and for keeping our kids safe, and we just wanted to thank them," said Principal Chuck Sorentino. "We want (the students) to learn that they are there to help you."
