Local Police Lead by Example

I’ve lived in Virginia since 1960 and all but seven of those years in Central Virginia.  In the past I’ve posted about real estate for sale, interesting events and places in Virginia, plus real estate tips.  The beauty of Virginia remains surpassed only by the great people who make Central Virginia home.  While checking e-mails and enjoy my morning coffee, I saw a great story on Channel 29 (local NBC affiliate) on the Thompson-Hall Fraternal Order of Police Lodge (FOP) helping one of their members.  Wow, what a great story! As a police officer and family had gotten behind on their mortgage due to health issues, the FOP Lodge got together  raising $25,000 to help out as he undergoes surgery and cancer treatment.  Thank you to our great neighbors who serve and protect us, for stepping forward helping one of their own and to NBC 29 for showcasing their efforts.  President Bob Romanac and all the FOP member should be thanked for their efforts!  If you see them in your travels, please stop and thank them.  The great people like Bob and our local police forces provide just one more reason why the quality of life remains fantastic in Charlottesville, Virginia and the surrounding Counties! 

Oh yea, I need to include a disclaimer:  I’m an affiliate member of Thompson Hall FOP Lodge and President Bob Romanac remains one of my good friends.  If you are interested in joining the FOP as an affiliate member or making a donation to help support these great community citizens, please visit the local FOP web site or do not hesitate in contacting me,  You get more by giving back to your community!
