The Somers Point Police Department was proud to be a part of the New York Avenue School's opening of their newest addition, The Butterfly Garden.

The garden was officially opened this past Saturday in memory of Wyatt Hopkins, a student of the school who passed away suddenly last Halloween just before his 5th birthday, according to the Ocean City Sentinel.

The police department took part in donating and laying down sod around the garden before the ceremony.
