That's the same day as the next JTI gathering. No worries - you can stop by the fundraiser on the way to Beejay's house or on the way back.

Another great way to rack up some money is after that all you can drink 10 dollar tap beer is wait outside in the parking lot and start ticketing those that start to drive home..

Kids at a tavern with beer? Do the cops know about this?

kkdither said...

Yes, that sort of threw me too. If you are at a cop fundraiser with all you can drink beer.... you better have a designated driver!

I'm sure they'll provide transportation if necessary. As for kids, food, adults, and beer, the church festivals do it all the time.

It's being held inside and outside, we are hopefully going to be using the grounds of the church across the street. Found out today we are going to have to shut down streets (RFD is bringing in engines and ambulances) this is a very kid friendly event during the day :)

Hey negative is not like the people are going to be stumbling down drunk at this event. The bar owner was gracious enough to donate her business for the use of the parking lot and building. And all you can do is bash the event because someone is trying to do something good for this city. If you look at the says "kid/family friendly meaning it's not all about drunk people sitting in a bar. Nice!! Open your eyes!!

Wow, there are so many things happening up there this weekend that I wish we were there.
I really don't think people will be getting too toasted at a police event but there are idiots everywhere. I think it is a great thing and hope the turnout is fabulous.

Anonymous - I think you need to lighten up here. People are just voicing their concerns.
