Monessen took steps on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 21, 2020 to promote greater unity between residents and the police by holding a free cook-out for the community at Ninth St. Park.

Monessen Councilwoman Lois Thomas with Monessen Mayor Matt Shorraw.

During the picnic, local pastors spoke to the attendees. Pastor John Custer of Orchard Christian Fellowship spoke about the need for a change in the human heart. Other speakers included Monessen Police Chief Jim Smith, Devona Carter, one of Monessen’s community organizers, Monessen Councilwoman Lois Thomas, Capt. Sue Thwaite of Monessen Salvation Army, and Elder Jack Howell of Christian Life Ministries.

The picnic was organized by community members and the Monessen Police Department and also featured face-painting for kids, DJ Smoke, fun activities, and fellowship.
