Liam with Fort Atkinson Police Officers. LIAM's STORY: Liam Bates is a 9 year old boy from Cottage Grove, WI. Several months ago Liam became upset with seeing how many people were negative towards police on the news. Liam gave is dad $10 and said he wanted to buy the police a gift to show them they are loved. His dad took that $10, put in some more money and ordered St. Michael's coins. Liam and his dad then designed a Thank you card which they had printed. Before they knew it they have given out 20 Thank you gifts to local law enforcement. The response was AMAZING. Some officers were choked up, some cried other tough guys all of a sudden were not so tough but really touched. Liam's dad invested in 50 more coins and cards. When those were gone Liam's dad started a go fund me page. The reason was because the police love the gifts, Liam loves giving the gifts but dad can't afford to thank every officer in the state. The response to the go fund me page allowed Liam to get 50 more coins and cards. Liam's goal now. Get at least one coin to an officer in every state....hand delivered. We will continue this mission as long as we have the support and means to do it. Liam was recently featured on NBC 15 in Madison for their Making a Difference Award. All because an officer who received a gift from Liam contacted them. Please consider donating to Liam's cause. Every little bit helps our man and women behind the badge know they are loved and appreciated.

Good reminder...Trick or Treating is October 29th from 1pm to 4pm. Please be safe!

Wake-Up Call is a life-size exhibit of a teen’s bedroom with more than 20 “red flags” that can signal drug or alcohol use. The bedroom identifies spots where teens may hide drugs, household items that can be used as drug paraphernalia and ways teens try to cover up drug and alcohol use. Our goal is to educate parents and other adults who are influential in the lives of youth so they know what seemingly innocent items can actually be an indication of substance abuse. A resource fair will take place from 6-6:30 PM with the program beginning at 6:30 PM. The experience will include a guided tour, signs and symptoms of drug use, tips for parents and a question-answer session. For questions about this event, please contact Sandi Lybert at (262) 367-9901. Please note: This event is for adults only (ages 21 and over).
