Salute to Heroes was a success

Editor:

On March 29, more than 7,500 people came to the 4th annual Salute to Heroes event sponsored by Sun Valley Tire at the Tim's Toyota Center parking lot in Prescott Valley.

The Arizona Sundogs and a number of other local sponsors made possible activities such as the Prescott Valley and Yavapai County Sheriff's K9s, rescue and rappelling demonstrations, and tours of helicopters, police, fire and SWAT vehicles. Kids and adults alike had a great time getting to know local veterans, law enforcement officers, fire and emergency medical personnel - including those from Chino Valley - who gave them information and tours of their vehicles and equipment. The Bigfoot Monster truck display and car crush along with the classic car show was a great hit with the crowd.

A portion of the proceeds from food sales and other items went to USVETS, and perhaps more importantly, the thousands of people who attended had a chance to personally thank those who put their lives in danger every day to protect our freedoms and keep us safe.

Thanks to the Arizona Sundogs, ProForce Law Enforcement Equipment, Davidson's, Tim's Toyota Center, Pepsi, and Papa John's Pizza for their sponsorships, and to local veterans, law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical personnel, and the Bradshaw Mountain High School Jazz Band for their contributions of time and expertise.

A special thanks to Prescott Valley Police Cmdr. Art Askew for organizing this great community event.
