The Cook Out was a great success. The weather was wonderful, everything all came together to make for an outstanding day. The silent auction for C.O.P.S helped raise money so family members of Officers Killed in the line of duty can get financial assistance for memorial travel to Washington DC. I would like to thank everyone who worked so diligently to make the day GREAT!
The gate key pads have been upgraded for the entry fence. The new pads are water proof and electronics have been upgraded. The gate code has not changed but, you must enter the # sign after entering the code…
