  1. National Public Safety Telecommunications Week

    April 11, 2021 - April 17, 2021

    Every year during the second week of April, the telecommunications personnel in the public safety community, are honored. This week-long event, initially set up in 1981 by Patricia Anderson of the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office in California, is a time to celebrate and thank those who dedicate their lives to serving the public. It is a week that should be set aside so everyone can be made aware of their hard work and dedication. We encourage all of you to celebrate and honor yourselves, your co-workers, your bosses and your employees.

  2. Phoenix Phase Initiative's Run For Her Life 5K & Half-Marathon

    April 17, 2021, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

    This is the first annual "Run For Her Life" virtual/in-person 5K and Half-Marathon! The Phoenix Phase Initiative is an Iowa-based non-profit dedicated to helping women who have been sexually trafficked around the world. These women are rarely given a chance to escape and, when they do get the chance, they RUN for it! The Phoenix Phase Initiative is there so they have a place to run to where they can be accepted, receive counseling, and learn job skills so they can break the cycle and create new lives for themselves. Help us help them by RUNNING with them toward freedom, restoration, and a life free of pain and fear! This will be an open course since it is our first year, but there will be police presence and volunteers directing traffic at the major intersections. Please follow all traffic laws!
