KPD Sergeant helps ‘rock-a-bye’ the first baby of 2018
December 31, 2017
Ketchikan Police Sergeant Bob Cheatam made the cradle, “Chief Joe White asked that we think of ways to be involved with the community and, since I’m an avid woodworker, making the cradle was a natural choice.”
Sergeant Cheatam has made over a dozen cradles through the years for friends and family. He adds accents depending on the person who received the cradle to reflect the family’s interest like deer or sports or boats. He’s even added armadillos.
The First Baby cradle has happy little monkeys scampering about.
Sergeant Cheatam isn’t the only one who contributed to the cradle, “my mom, Ardith Smith, does the bedding and the mattress. She loves helping out knowing it is for a good cause.
“Once the baby has outgrown the cradle it can be used as a toy box.”
