In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
All, please keep our bartender Chris Mattison and family in your prayers tonight. He was injured in a motorcycle accident leaving the Lodge’s Car show. He has a badly injured ankle and will undergo surgery on Monday. Along with that he has several broken ribs, a broken clavicle and one of his lungs partially collapsed. Jodi has advised that his lung is better tonight.
Update on Chris Mattison
5/22/2017 He will undergo ankle surgery at 7:30am today. It was also determined today that he broke his scapula (shoulder blade). He’s a tough guy, but he’s got to be in major pain…..please keep him in your thoughts…..
Chris Mattison Update
5/23/2017 Update on Chris: Saw him a little while ago. He’s off the ventilator and better today, still in a lot of pain but they have had him up once and his description of that was, “It was tough”. He still has a long road to go but he’s on the mend. He and Jodi want to thank all that thought of them and said prayers, it is greatly appreciated!!!!
