The Thin Blue returns to the Clark Lake Community Center.  This is a fundraiser in support of the Columbia Township Shop with a Cop program and Andy’s Angels.  At Christmas, Township officers help children in need.  Two-thirds of the money contributed at this event goes toward that activity.  Click to read about last year’s event.  

Police Chief David Elwell and Sergeant Jay Niles attended last year’s event. 

Some of the Township’s emergency vehicles will be hand. 

A third of the money raised will go to Andy’s Angels, an opioid addiction program. The Andy’s Angels website describes their program:  “Andy’s Angels is a non-profit foundation formed in an effort to educate the community on opiate abuse and provide support for families and those suffering addiction. Our foundation raises funds to assist with the costs for treatment programs. Andy’s Angels honors Andy Hirst who passed away May 17, 2010 from a heroin overdose.”
