"We look forward to this year's Oktoberfest and everyone that continually comes out to support this great event. A special thank you to Steve and Rachel Scro for their continued support of our Fraternal Order of Police, as well as the other businesses and Associate Members that are there for us year after year,” said Sparta Chief of Police Neil Spidaletto.
