WENATCHEE AREA CHIEF FOR A DAY - On Thursday April 26, 2018 Wenatchee Police, Washington State Patrol, Chelan County Sheriff, Douglas County Sheriff, Washington State Fish and Wildlife, and East Wenatchee Police will co-sponsor the annual Wenatchee Area Chief for a Day celebration. Chief for a Day is an opportunity to celebrate the lives of chronically and/or terminally ill children from our area. The children will receive and wear tailored police uniforms from each local law enforcement agency. During a ceremony at Memorial Park they will be sworn in by a local reigning Judge and receive a customized badge from their agency. After a brief presentation by sponsoring Chiefs and Sheriffs, these small “Chiefs’ will spend one or more hours interacting with the public and police, enjoying interactive police displays set up throughout the park. These displays will include police motorcycles, search and rescue tools, boats, a helicopter, the honor guard and rifle teams, and much more. Part of the presentation will be gifts donated by area merchants and departmental personnel. This has made such a tremendous impact on the children that two of them requested, and were buried in their uniforms given to them by their sponsoring law enforcement department. If you would like to donate to Chief for a Day following is the Federal Tax ID NO: 91-0539791, please make checks out to Apple Blossom Festival – Chief for a Day.
