In 1999 the Kops & Kids program teamed up with a new member to our community - The Hubbard Boys Basketball 6th Man Association.  This organization, created by Head Coach Bernie Tarr, gives members of the boys basketball team and cheerleaders an opportunity to interact with handicap students in the Hubbard Schools through various activities.  We were pleased to be included on one such activity.  On October 15, 1999 we accompanied the 6th Man Association to Kochemba's Diary Farm in northern Trumbull County where we learned about the day to day life on a real working dairy farm and were able to interact with some of the animals on the farm.
