Colonnades Residents Show Appreciation of Public Safety Personnel The Colonnades Community takes great pride in recognizing the brave, local heroes within their community. That being said, the waterfront community hosted another Appreciation Week to honor local public safety personnel. Beginning October 15th and through October 19th, employees of the Fort Pierce Police Department, St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office, St. Lucie County Fire District, and the U.S. Coast Guard were invited to visit their choice of four restaurants and enjoy a select breakfast, lunch or snack. The Fort Pierce restaurants participating in the five days of gratitude were Hurricane Grill & Wings, 2017 Seaway Drive; Manatee Island Bar & Grill, 1640 Seaway Drive; Dave’s Diner, 1011 Seaway Drive, and Goodfellas’ Pizza, 1008 B Seaway Drive. “Appreciation Week is our way of saying ‘Thank You’ to the wonderful men and women, who protect and serve our communities day in and day out without complaint,” said Mike Oyler, president of the Colonnades Members Inc. “We appreciate all they do!” This is the fourth year, the residents and business have united to provide this generous offer to first responders. “I would like to thank the Colonnades Community and the restaurants for showing us that you care,” said Chief Diane Hobley-Burney. “Fort Pierce is home to us. It is a wonderful feeling to get the recognition that you are appreciated.”

“At Mission BBQ, we are proudly serving those who serve” According to Bill and Newt, the founders of Mission BBQ, heroes are what makes our country great and they strive daily to remind people of that by designing their restaurant's dining rooms to incorporate tributes to our country’s heroes, to include our military and first responders. Last night, local law enforcement officers and their friends and families were invited to the new Mission BBQ in St. Lucie West for the law enforcement officer’s friends and family night, a private party to honor those who serve as area law enforcement. This location is the 73rd restaurant in Mission BBQ's chain of restaurants. The turnout was great and the line to order food was way beyond the entrance doors for most of the three hour event. Just in case you wondered, they also had separate parties for our area fire fighters and military personnel. To show their support for our local first responders, Mission BBQ donated all the sales of the evening to the St. Lucie County One Hundred Club, totalling $4629.72. The St. Lucie County Hundred Club is an organization that provides direct financial aid to spouses and dependents of law enforcement officers and firefighters who have lost their life of have become disabled in the line of duty. Thank you again Mission BBQ for your support of the heroes in our community.

Coffee with a Cop, round three. This morning, we had our third and final Coffee with a Cop at the McDonalds located inside the Pilot truck stop. In the two hours that we were there, we chatted with our fair share of truckers who came in and out of the McDonalds to grab breakfast before heading out onto the open highway. What a diverse set of individuals....they were as diverse as the destinations on their load manifests. The Fort Pierce Police Department would like to sincerely thank McDonalds Corporation for hosting the three Coffee with a Cop events this month in our city and helping bring us closer to our community, one coffee and conversation at a time.

To "protect and serve" is a good way to sum up a police officer's duties. A few days ago, Officer John Fasanello saw a roll of nylon strap with about 300 feet of unwound strap stretched across all lanes of traffic on U.S. Highway 1. Seeing the obstruction in the roadway, Officer Fasanello stopped to pick up the obstruction and stood in the roadway to wind up the loose strap before removing of the roll of strap. After being shown this picture that was taken by a passing motorist, Officer Fasanello said he felt it was important to remove obstructions in the road as they are potential causes for crashes. However, in this case, he was also concerned that the loose strap may get tangled up in someone's vehicle's undercarriage and cause mechanical damage to their vehicle. Thank you Officer Fasanello for your dedication to your job and public safety and well being.

Who was more excited? Fort Pierce Police K9 Lotto being around almost 40 kids or the almost 40 kids at Open Arms VPK of Fort Pierce. Today, sergeants, officers, detectives and a community service officer from the Fort Pierce Police Department went to visit the VPK kids at Open Arms VPK. The kids have been learning about community helpers all week and today was about police officers. After a group singing of the hit song “baby shark”, the kids got to visit with K9 Lotto, got stickers and coloring books, checked out some police cars and got ice pops to go with their lunch. As an added bonus for the visiting officers, the VPK kids made them a nice big box of goodies to take with them. The Fort Pierce Police Department would like to extend a huge thank you to the staff and kids of Open Arms VPK for inviting us to be part of your community helpers week and thanks especially for that nice care package you made us.

While at an event today at the McDonalds by Interstate I-95, officers from the Fort Pierce Police Department ran into several National Guard convoys. Our officers took a few moments to chat with the traveling service men and women during their rest stop.

We would like to take a moment to thank all our service members as well as all first responders who will be working tirelessly in the aftermath of hurricane Michael.

Last year when we had Coffee with a Cop at this McDonalds location, we ran into individuals from as far away as Germany, Colombia and Hong Kong. This time round, Massachusetts was the furthest place where someone we spoke to was from but nonetheless, it was another successful Coffee with a Cop at the Turnpike McDonalds. While we were there, we also greeted and thanked a group of our National Guard service members while their convoy stopped at the McDonalds. They are en-route to north Florida in preparations to help people and communities who may become affected by hurricane Michael. Today, great casual conversation took place with some of our local residents as well as many travelers who stopped in Fort Pierce to grab a bite to eat. Great conversations between the Police and our citizens is the whole idea behind Coffee with a Cop.

When Fort Pierce Police Department officers interact with neighborhood children in the Courageous Kids program, their goal is simply to establish positive connections with the kids on a personal level. For some officers they may never discover what kind of impact they are having , unless they are told. Recently, Officer Al Garcia received a handwritten letter from one of the children, who participates in the weekly program held 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at First Step Park, Avenue G and 31st Street. She expressed her gratitude in two short precious sentences and ended with “Thank you Thankyou Thank you”
