I got to play in the shop with a cop golf tournament on Saturday that had about 34 teams playing. Although my team played less than stellar all had a good time. Last year the monies raised through this and other fundraisers allowed your local law enforcement take 86 needy children shopping at Walmart where they got to spend $125 on clothes and $125 on toys. It is so nice to be able to give back to local community in this way.
Your Fairfield Bay police department sponsored a bicycle safety class a few months ago and monies raised we were able to give out about a dozen new bikes to kids without one and new helmets to all who attended. Kirk of the Hills men’s club donated hotdogs, chips and soda for that event. This will now be a yearly event.
Another great event was the back to school backpack giveaway that was sponsored by the paper, local churches and the PD. We gave away loaded backpacks to about 80 local students which saved families a fair amount of money. We are planning to make this an annual event and hopefully we can do closer to 200 next year.
We are going to have a food basket drive going around Christmas this year to insure our shut ins and people without family close by get a good meal. We are so very lucky to live in a community that helps us with donations to accomplish all these needed and worthwhile projects. Thank you so much to our many volunteer groups, church’s and others who help us pull off these programs.
