Your partner has your back, but we've got your soul.

Upper Room Club UPDATE:
Lois and Chuck, Upper Room Club "regulars," really miss seeing the gang at Pizano's. So they very generously offered to host us in their yard on the northwest side (Canfield/Higgins).

Date: Tuesday, 15 JUN (weather permitting)
Time: 6:00 p.m.
Bring: a lawn chair if you have one.

Burgers and sausages will be served. If you'd like to attend, please email me back for the address and so we can arrange guests bringing chips/sides/wine/pop.
 I look forward to breaking bread and sharing faith! Thank you, Lois and Chuck!!
Over the course of 24 hours, Robert Swiderski will run 80 miles from one CPD district to the next, to raise funds and awareness for mental health resources to benefit our officers.

The run begins at the 008th District station at 10:00 a.m. on June 19th.

"The credit belongs to those who are actually in the arena, who strive valiantly; who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spend themselves in a worthy cause; who at best know the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if they fail, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

― Theodore Roosevelt
1858 - 1919
