The community is rallying around the family of late Delmar Police Department Cpl. Keith Heacook with multiple events.
Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Kylan Barn in Delmar, volunteers will apply a blue line to back windshields in tribute to Heacook. It’s free but donations will be accepted, which will go to the Heacook family.
A limited amount of stickers featuring Heacook’s badge number will be available, as well. Tents will be set up in case of rain. Food from Mission Barbecue will be available and DJ Kopec will play live.
The event is being hosted by The Blue Line Network, a nonprofit that provides support and resources to first responders and their families.
Heacook’s funeral is set for noon Monday, May 10, at Emmanuel Wesleyan Church in Salisbury, with visitation from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
That night, country music’s Jimmie Allen, a Milton native, will put on a fundraising show at the Bottle & Cork in Dewey Beach.
Allen posted a video on Facebook on Tuesday evening announcing the 7 p.m. pop-up acoustic show. Tickets will be $10 at the door and all proceeds will go towards Heacook’s family.
Allen will return home from Nashville to play the show, and later next week, he’ll head to Coachella, California, to play a show with Toby Keith. He’s known for songs like “Best Shot” and “Make Me Want To.”
