Children's Village of Washington County Inc. received a check for $2,000 from the third annual law enforcement ride organized by the Blue Knights of Maryland II.  

The ride is held in memory of Smithsburg Police Officer Christopher Nicholson, who was killed in the line of duty three years ago.

Nicholson was a volunteer police instructor at Children's Village at the time of his death. The Nicholson family remains supportive of the Children's Village mission of providing free life-safety education and skills training to all second-grade students in Washington County.

"Children's Village is honored that the Nicholson family considers its program a fitting way to keep Chris' name and memory alive," said Rochelle Morrell, executive director of Children's Village.

Children's Village and the Nicholson family are grateful to the Blue Knights, an organization of active duty and retired law enforcement officers from federal, state, county and city governments, for organizing the ride.

Children's Village is a nonprofit organization that provides free, life-safety education to all second-grade students.
