The dance group Final Destination earned second place. The 101 Precinct Community Council and Goldie Maple Academy presented a show with something for everyone. There was dancing, including praise worship dancing, singing, rapping, and stepping. A distinguished five-member panel judged the competition. This year’s DJ was retired Detective Todd Taylor, with his organization Taylor- Made Productions. A special recognition and farewell was offered to Deputy Inspector Michael LiPetri as he made his last community appearance. He was transferred out of the 101 to become the CO of the 79 Precinct.
Team Expo earned first place in the judges’ scoring for a uniquely choreographed dance routine.
