More than 250 free vanilla cones were distributed to attendees of the South Elgin McDonald's "Cone with A Cop" event Wednesday, May 29.

Owned and operated by the Bear family, the South Elgin McDonald's at 100 N. McLean Blvd. is honored to take part in community-building events like this, especially as they engage the local police force and celebrate the last day of school.

McDonald's owner and operator David Bear was thrilled with the afternoon's events.

"We are proud of the role we have maintained in South Elgin over the years, and we are happy to see the community and the local police department enjoying cones together. It's just how spring should be," Bear said.

South Elgin Police Chief Jerry Krawczyk, Sgt. Brett Czechowski, officers Jim Creighton, Adam Rzeppa, Jennifer Miklitsch and Joe Franks, Records Clerks Tracy Morel and Peg Haacker all joined in the fun at McDonald's.

Local law enforcement and community members were happy to enjoy conversation together, and the officers enjoyed making cones. The officers took many pictures with kids from the local schools.

The Bear family would like to thank Officer Creighton, who contributed to the coordination of the "Cone with A Cop" event. The Bear family would also like to thank all of the officers who came to the event, helped serve vanilla cones, took pictures with the community members, and met members of the community.
