May 1, 2012 — Those who work in public safety put their life on the line every day. To recognize their efforts, the Diamond Mountain Casino and Hotel is hosting a spaghetti feed.
The event will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 3 at the casino and proceeds will go to the Susanville Memorial Fund and will be used in three ways.
Susanville Memorial Fund President Heather Roney said the money will be used for the immediate needs and emergency fund, which is immediately given to a spouse and child(ren) of a person who is killed in the line of duty.
Money will also be used for an awards ceremony honoring the men and women in public service scheduled for Wednesday, May 16 at the clubhouse at the Diamond Mountain Golf Course. Approximately 38 agencies — law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services — are planning to attend.
Roney said agencies in Lake Almanor and Chester are even interested in participating.
Funds will also assist other agencies and groupswho are doing good for the public servants.
For example, Roney said the group intends to assist the city and police department in creating a place to honor public servants who have died in the line of duty and encourage those still serving. Treats Dog Company is wanting to raise $10,000 to get a canine dog for the Lassen and Plumas County sheriff departments.
For more information about the Susanville Memorial Fund, call Roney at 260-0245 or Vice President Sarah Garate at 249-9700.
Roney said the goal of the Susanville Memorial Fund is “honoring our public servants who have fallen in the line of duty as well as those who continue to serve.”
