Elementary Students Name Goose and Gander at Pleasant Hill Police Station

Goose and gander name

The goose and gander returned another year for the protection of the Pleasant Hill Police Department for the birth of their goslings. To ensure the officers know what to call the goose and gander for future years, the department involved the kindergarten and elementary students at Four Mile Elementary and Pleasant Hill Elementary.

“Community involvement is something we take very serious within our department,” said Police Chief Al Pizzano. “Involving each of the schools was important because we want the children to understand the value of law enforcement and see us as a friend. Throughout this past year, we have had tremendous support from our community. To show our gratitude we are giving back and this is certainly a fun way to involve our children to help name our guests.”

Since 2013, the department has been keeping track of the goslings that hatch. In May 2013, there were four; May 2014 five, April 2015 and 2016 there were seven. This year, there are seven goslings.

The Police Department has chosen Lulu as the name for the goose and Mr. Bean for the gander. Mrs. Wandro’s first grade class and Miss. Boser’s kindergarten class from Four Mile Elementary came up with the name for the goose, and Mrs. Munsinger’s first grade class from Pleasant Hill Elementary came up with the gander’s winning name. The Police Department will be visiting each of the schools and delivering treats to the winning class to show their appreciation and support.
