I am the newest member of the board of the Edmonds Police Foundation.
I want to let everyone know that we are having a terrific Open House on Thursday, July 25, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the police station. I hope everyone can come and tour the station and meet our wonderful police officers. There will be something for everyone and it will be time well spent! There will be fun things for children as well as grownups. This is an excellent opportunity to meet police officers in a fun and relaxed atmosphere and perhaps learn a little about the important work they do.
In the past, I have interacted with police officers and deputy sheriffs in other states, and I found it to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. At various events I got to meet celebrities like Martin Milner and Joseph Wambaugh, but to me the real stars were the police officers who serve and protect us every day.
Everybody wants to meet celebrities, so now’s your chance! No, you won’t meet movie stars, but I promise you will meet some real-life action heroes.
Remember, when you hear strange noises at your back door at 2 a.m., you know who you’re going to call and it’s not the Ghostbusters!
So please come and show your support for our police officers. You will make their day and how often do you get to do that for anyone?
