Top of Virginia Regional Chamber Valor Awards
24 October 2018
We were in the studio with Ashley from Top of Virginia Regional Chamber to talk about the Valor Awards happening on Thursday, November 1, 2018. Valor Award committee members, Katrina Meade (City National Bank – sponsor of the event) & Chief Allen Baldwin (Winchester Fire & Rescue) were her guests. The sixth annual Valor Awards Dinner serves to recognize law enforcement and fire and rescue efforts in Winchester, Frederick and Clarke Counties.
We talked about the awards that celebrate those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to protect our community; the important role they play to highlight our public safety personnel & citizens as well as spotlight all the great things that are happening in our community that don’t always rate a headline in local news. The event also serves as a fundraiser each year. This year will benefit Winchester City Sheriff’s Office Foundation and the project the funds will support is a Project Lifesaver System.This is a tracking system which helps people who suffer from Alzheimer’s or autism that causes them to wander. Funding will cover initial startup fees and provide “scholarships” to local families that deal with this situation but cannot afford the cost of the equipment.
