Paris High School Student Crime Stoppers presents Guns -N- Hosez at Paris High School on April 6 at 6 p.m.
Paris police officers and Paris firefighters are set to go head-to-head in a friendly game of basketball.
Paris Police Officer Joey Nelms said there has always been a friendly rivalry between firemen and police officers, “and Paris is no different.
“Last year got lucky and pulled out the victory,” Nelms said. “We have recruited this year to hopefully bring a more prepared team to the court. I’m confident at the end of the game, the trophy will go the the law enforcement folks this year.”
Paris Fire Department’s Assistant Fire Chief Thomas McMonigle said the fire department “always looks forward to the challenge presented when competing against our Brothers in Blue.
“I fully expect this year’s challenge, like last year’s — and almost every other challenge — to be won by our firefighters,” McMonigle said. “The trophy has a permanent home at and would look totally out of place anywhere else.”
Amber Musgrove with Paris High School said all proceeds from this match go to the Paris High School Crime Stoppers’ organization.
“We have some awesome policemen and firefighters ready to compete on the basketball court,” Musgrove said.
Tickets at $5 a piece are available at the door, or at Paris High School’s front office.
