Since our last report our Auxiliary, together with our FOP and the DC MPD Labor Union were able to give both of the injured DC MPD officers that were critically injured on June 8th over $20,000 each to help them during their recovery. Both officers are slowly recovering. Please keep them in your prayers.
Our Vice President, Patty Sucato recently lost her mother and we ask that you please keep her and her family in your prayers as well.
Our next event will be National Nite Out on August 1st at the DC FOP from 6pm to 8pm . We are expecting to have a good turnout again this year. It seems to have gotten more popular since we first started doing it with our FOP three years ago. It is great to be able to reach out to the local community and see the same ones making an effort to come back to our FOP every year to partake in the refreshments and law enforcement displays from the different agencies.
Another new DC MPD Recruit Class 17-1 will be graduating this Friday and congratulations go out to these new officers and prayers for the safety always.
We are looking forward to the National Conference in TN next month and seeing all of our FOP brothers and sisters and their families. Our Treasurer, Linda Short and our Sgt. At Arms, Mirella Arroyo will be attending with me this time. We look forward to all of the informative classes and new information that will be provided at the meetings.
Our Auxiliary has been working on some events for this coming fall, one of which will be Paint Nite, which we hope to do in September or October. The other event will be a fundraiser at the Greene Turtle. We will keep you posted.
From the DC FOP Auxiliary we wish all of you a safe remainder of the summer and fun vacations.
