As a board member of the Hundred Club of Genesee, Shiawassee and Lapeer Counties, I hope that everyone is safe and healthy. I wanted to reach out to inform you that at a recent board meeting we decided to postpone our annual June Hero’s Night due to the current pandemic. We are hoping to be able to reschedule the event for September.
As you may know, the purpose of our June event is to honor “heroes” within our communities. We feel it’s especially important now to make every effort to move forward with our recognition dinner to honor these brave individuals, as well as acknowledge the safety grants that we will continue to award to departments throughout our three counties.
Thanks to all of you who support the Hundred Club. With your generosity we were able to provide more than $90,000 in safety grants to our local fire and law enforcement agencies. Our goal is to provide that same level of support again in 2020. Keeping our front line safe is our number one priority.
The Hundred Club of Genesee, Shiawassee and Lapeer Counties is an organization of county residents who contribute money each year for the benefit of public servants who have been killed or disabled in the line of duty and their families. These public servants include police officers, firefighters, FBI agents, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms agents and Drug Enforcement Administration agents.
