Sheriff's Banquet

Back in 2009-2010, Hut became a member of the Polk County Sheriff's Advisory Council. This is a program where volunteers provide feedback to the Sheriff regarding matters affecting the functions of the Sheriff's office. They do this at quarterly meetings and by being exposed to the many and diverse facets of the agency. Council members serve a one year term and after that are considered Alumni and still participate in meeting and the annual banquet. The coucil must participate in ride alongs with deputies, work at the jail and bookings among other things.

Here is Hut and I for our annual banquet photo. We had Scott take one of us at the house the past two years before we left the house. This year our friend Mary took it at the banquet because we no longer have kids at home.
Here is our Sheriff, Grady Judd, with the band, Jill's Cash Box. Notice he is dressed as an old tyme Sheriff and yes, those are real six shooters at his side.Here's my handsome hunk of a husband, with Jill's Cash Box. This was such an awesome band. For those of you who are friends on FB, I put a small video of them on my timeline. They consider themselves to be a country band. It's more like country/rock. I believe this band will go far.Hut and Sheriff Judd. He's a very friendly man, but don't let that smile fool you. If you want to break the law, do it somewhere else. Sheriff Judd has zero tolerance for crime, especially those again our children.Oh look, they let me be in a picture with the Sheriff, too.

I have applied every year to be on the council since Hut's first year. This may be the year I finally make it. I certainly hope so. We've met so many wonderful people in the community and in law enforcement that have become friends already. I'm ready to make some more new friends. They will announce who makes this year's council on May 4. Stay tuned for updates. Here's hoping it's my time!
