LOVES PARK, Ill. (WIFR) - A 6-year-old boy from Loves Park held a lemonade stand Wednesday as a way to give back and thank our local police officers who keep us safe every day.
Hudson Stern is obsessed with police officers. Hudson's mom says a few months ago, he got a new police car that he rides around his neighborhood while wearing a police costume. Hudson says he likes to ride around patrolling and keeping watch in his neighborhood.
Officers from Loves Park, Rockford and Illinois State Police came to get some lemonade from junior officer Hudson.
"I'm so impressed with how the community came together to support Hudson. I mean a few donuts and some lemonade and we've had a dozen officers stop by including the chief, O'Shea, so we're just delighted," said Hudson's mother Angela.
Angela says seeing all the officers show up to Hudson's lemonade stand made his day. Hudson hopes to become a police officer when he grows up.
