LAFAYETTE, Ind (WLFI) - A former '70s T.V. cop turned real cop, makes a stop in Lafayette.
Actor Erik Estrada, from the famed T.V. show CHiPS, made a stop at Moose Lodge 1529 in Lafayette. Estrada who has been a Moose member for the last seven years, wanted a way for people to know more about the organization, so he decided to make a documentary highlighting all the positive things the Moose Lodges do.
Aside from being a Moose member, Estrada also serves as a police officer with a department in Virginia.
Erik Estrada said that the Moose organization does more than people think.
"I call it the world's best kept secret, said Estrada. "Financially they put out over $40 million a year in donations to special Olympics, bone marrow transfers, to cancer victims, to just any need that is necessary. They are there."
After Estrada spoke to the group, he took photos and signed autographs with members of the local Moose Lodge. His DVD titled "Finding Faith" was also available for purchase.
Inventions were built by Purdue mechanical engineering students for a final class project.
