What do cake, coloring pages and crime prevention have in common?
They can all be found at the 20th Anniversary and Open House presented by the Edmonds Police Foundation and the Edmonds Police Department on Wednesday, Aug. 3 between 5-8 p.m.
Cake has always been a traditional way to celebrate an event. What’s new is that members of the community have taken to donating cakes to facilitate the heralding and celebration of local events. Four cakes have been donated by the following:
First Financial Northwest Bank
Kids who bring the coloring pages distributed by the Police Foundation — available at the Edmonds Library, the Edmonds Boys and Girls Club, the Frances Anderson Center and the police department — will receive a small gift. Everyone can have a piece of cake while they check out the wide range of police equipment in the parking lot. Then just walk up the steps to the police department. Once inside, you can talk with the officers at the kiosks who will be providing information about online safety for young people, home security, crimes against persons and more.
Buy raffle tickets for a chance to win an adult basket full of great gifts from a long list of local businesses, or a children’s basket with fun for the rest of the summer. You can also win a ride- a-long with K-9 Hobbs or a shooting simulator experience.
Tickets sell for $5 each or three tickets for $10.
Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the purchase of a much-needed replacement of the department’s training simulator.
