Annual Rotary Club Hosts Public Safety Celebration

The Rotary Club of Southlake will honor area firefighters, police officers and support personnel with its annual DPS Appreciation Celebration on Saturday, June 1, at the gazebo in Southlake Town Square.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. visitors will find fire engines, police cars and motorcycles, as well as live music, children’s activities, a blood drive, free food and refreshments. The Rotary Club of Southlake would like to thank Freedom Powersports who is the Chief Sponsor for the event.

“We are so grateful to our public safety officers and this is our chance to celebrate all of them, we would like to invite the public to join in our celebration!” said Christine Singh, chair of the event.

Other local sponsors include Park Place Motorcars, Providential Realty Partners, Providence Bank of Texas, Sean Cerone, DDS, PA., Met life Auto & Home Insurance, Hendricks Insurance Agency, Juli Bledsoe Realtor, Mike Bowman, Inc. and many others. Donations from our local sponsors will help fund scholarships for the children of local public service workers. Last year’s event allowed the Southlake Rotary club to award $3000 in college scholarships to our DPS families.

Attendance is free and the public is encouraged to stop by to show their appreciation and support. Snoopy will be on hand to meet and greet all children.  Met Life Auto and Home Insurance in coordination with the Southlake Police Department will be providing free finger printing services for children.

Entertainment will include Hall’s Music Productions and Dana’s Studio of Dance. Other local businesses participating will be Rita’s Italian Ice, The Owl’s Nest, Aleda’s Pizza and Dickey’s BBQ.
