Lawton Police Officers and kids from the community took time to spread Christmas cheer on Thursday as they visited assisted living and nursing centers across Lawton at their third annual caroling event. 

"It's really happy to see that they're happy and they're singing with us," caroler Ali Biscaino said.

It wasn't just the carolers that sang, at Brookridge Retirement, the residents also sang along. Resident Janelle Spencer said the kids and officers really got into it which made it more fun.

"We enjoyed it and it makes us feel so Christmasy," Spencer said.

Lawton Police Sergeant Timothy Jenkins said they take this event to nursing homes and assisted living centers because sometimes residents there don't have family that visits them. 

"They're looking for somebody to come and talk to them and spend some time with them so we do this as an extension as the Lawton Police department to say ‘hey we do care about you guys and we haven't forgotten about you during the Christmas time,'” Jenkins said.

And even at a young age, Biscaino understands and wants to help.

"It's important to me to come out because some of these people barely get to see their families so it's good for them to us helping them cheer up when they can't see their family for Christmas," Biscaino said.

"It makes us feel like they're remembering us and we appreciate it," Spencer said.

After they sang carols, they passed out candy canes and heard Christmas stories from the residents.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.

    The documents have been at the center of a political firestorm for months, as some Republicans have suggested that the FBI misrepresented evidence to obtain warrants to monitor Carter Page as they investigated possible collusion between the Russian government and a Trump aide.
