imageThank you to our City colleagues in our Facilities and Parks and Recreation Departments. They were up early this morning hanging a 20 foot banner on the front of our building in honor of National Police Week.

National Police Week is May 11-17 this year, and your local law enforcement agencies have a couple of family friendly, FREE events.  The events are being held at the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office this year (215 Rice St):

Monday, May 12 at 7:30pm- Flag ceremony with the Honor Guard

Tuesday, May 13 at 6:30pm- Touch a truck (tour our specialized vehicles), immediately followed by the annual Memorial Vigil.

We have more details on these events in a previous post.

We hope you and your family will join us!
