The Penn Yan Elks Lodge 1722 "Just Say No to Drugs Committee" expressed their appreciation to the law enforcement agencies that serve our community by hosting a dinner for them Thursday, March 16.
The Yates County Sheriff's Office, the Penn Yan Police Dept., and the Dundee Barracks of the N.Y. State Troopers were joined by County Sheriff Ron Spike, Police Chief Mark Hulse, and State Police Station Sgt. Scott Reinard, plus Yates County Judge Jason Cook and District Attorney Valerie Gardner at the dinner.
Following a 48-hour snow storm, the number of officers who were able to attend was lower than expected, but Yates County Emergency Management Director and Elks member Brian Winslow made sure the committee's thanks to all the officers was deeply expressed, saying,"For what you do to not only keep our kids safe, but keep our entire community safe. Remember, you are appreciated."
