Officers recognized by Monette Senior Citizens
Monette Senior Citizens hosted a Police Officer's Appreciation Luncheon Aug. 31 at the Community Building on South Williams St.
"These officers answer the call for assistance any day or time they are needed," said Monette Mayor Chub Qualls. "They are very deserving of recognition, as they are deeply appreciated. We always need to remember to thank them for their service to the community."
"Our senior citizens wanted to do something to show our respect and thankfulness for our police officers, so they put together this meal to honor them," said Dorothy Reid, Monette Senior Citizen meal coordinator. "They are always there when we call, and I can't imagine what we would do without them."
The Monette Senior Citizens prepared and served the meal for the officers and city officials, along with special guests. The meal contributors included Dorothy Reid, Anna Lou Qualls, William and Lilly Piercy, Estelle Holmes, Brenda Carmichael, Barbara and Steve Suber and Rodney Robertson.
Officers in attendance included Craighead County Eastern District Deputy Sherriff Garland Tipton, County Officer Chris Kelems, Monette Police Chief Brian Carmichael, with City Officers Anthony Petty and Kevin Bond.
