The holidays are upon us and while we think of many classic sayings at this time like "We wish you a Merry Christmas" and "It's better to give than to receive", meanwhile in Copperas Cove this holiday season, The Copperas Cove Police & Fire Departments are getting their holidays started by saying "If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball"...

The Copperas Cove Police Department will be battling against the Copperas Cove Fire Department in a game of Dodgeball on Saturday December 3rd at The Copperas Cove Avenue E Alternative Gym starting at 5:00 PM. Your only admission is an unwrapped toy that will be donated to The Copperas Cove Blue Santa Program which helps local families in need this and every holiday season. For more information contact Sgt. Martin Ruiz at 254-547-8222 ext. 6956.
