Today, Saturday August 4, 2012, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the Portland Police Bureau and the Wattles Boys and Girls Club are partnering for an open house and "Back to School" event at the Wattles Boys and Girls Club located at 9330 Southeast Harold Street.

The Boys and Girls Club "Back to School" event is a joint celebration with the Portland Police Bureau's East Precinct and is a great opportunity for local families to interact with police officers in an environment and location familiar to Lents community members. School supplies will be distributed to local youth that were purchased utilizing Portland Police Bureau drug forfeiture funds.

The Boys and Girls Club will provide a barbecue lunch, field games and raffle prizes. Members of the Portland Police Bureau's East Precinct and various specialty units will be in attendance.

The community and media are invited to attend.
