The Cold Spring Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to invite you to its annual Hometown Pride Breakfast! The pancake breakfast will be served at the St. Boniface Parish Center from 7:30- 10:00 am on Friday, July 28. This year’s donations and freewill offering will benefit the Cold Spring Police Department K9 Project.
“Thank you for selecting us as the recipient,” writes Chief Jason Blum of the CSPD. “I am currently the handler for Riley, who has been with our department since early 2015. Riley is certified for narcotics, tracking, and article searches… all of the searching
Riley does is passive. The new K9 will be trained in apprehensions, along with narcotics and tracking.This is beneficial to protect the officers and give us another tool on the tool belt to help deal with situations. All of the funds that are raised are used to purchase the K9, needed equipment (training aids), and to assist with the training of the dog.”
“I see this as a worthy cause,” wrote Chamber member John Larson of Granite Country Computer Repair in the letter he sent with his donation to the project.
Before the breakfast, donations can be sent to the Chamber of Commerce office at 20 Red River Ave S, Suite 110 in Cold Spring, MN 56320. Donations will also be collected at the breakfast. Hope to see you there!
