COTUIT– On Sunday, the Cotuit Kettleers hosted First Responder’s Day, an event that celebrated the efforts of local law enforcement and honored the lives of both Yarmouth police officer Sean Gannon, and recently slain Weymouth police officer Michael Chesna.
On hand for the ceremony was the Barnstable Police Department, including the Barnstable PD Honor Guard, who displayed our nation’s colors in a pregame ceremony that featured a helicopter flyover.
In addition, numerous Barnstable PD vehicles were on hand for the ceremony, and fans were able to climb inside and see first-hand how local law enforcement gets around Barnstable on a daily basis.
The Kettleers, along with all ten Cape League teams, are wearing pins on their hats this season to commemorate Gannon’s life of public service.
On behalf of the Cotuit Kettleers organization, we thank local law enforcement for their service to the community and for participating in the ceremony on Sunday.
