Years of Work Completed

We went to the dedication of our new Public Safety Building and it was a happy, community unifying time.  From before Don started working for the police department and then retiring, this building has been in the planning stages and construction.  A combination of grants and city renewal money paid for it.  No taxes on the community.  At all.  Cool.

Presenting Colors

Mayor John Lazar says a few words about the history of this building effort.

Michael Anderson from Congressman Jeff Denham's off presents a flag to Chief Rob Jackson and Mayor Lazar.  This flag flew over the Pentagon this year on September 11th.

The VFW and American Legion fund raised for a memorial to be erected to honor each of the armed services. The  American Legion Commander is at the podium.  The Vice Commander for VFW is at the far right. Unfortunately, I don't know their names.

A fitting end to an uplifting hour.

How wonderful that the building could be completed without adding a tax burden to the people. I wish all cities and towns would learn from this to live within their budgets.

So wonderful when something finally comes to fruition! Your town sounds so very connected. Three cheers!

I'm way behind on blogging -- internet limitations. Soon, I hope to catch up. Or start anew!

Looks like there are some very dedicated people there. I liked your panoramic wide shot Annie- captured the community atmosphere beautifully.
