Police Department Takes Home Guns and Hoses Trophy

Congratulations to our 2010 Guns and Hoses Memorial Football Team on raising over $4000 (not including expenses) for the Fire and Police Memorial. Employees of the Champaign Police and Fire departments sponsored this event as a way to raise funds for completion of the memorial, which is still under construction. So far, donors have contributed about $40,000 for the memorial. When another $60,000 is raised, statutes of a police officer and firefighter will be added to the memorial site.

Fund-raising efforts for the new Champaign Fire and Police Memorial include the sale of bricks, to pave the memorial site. For information on contributing, please visit bricksrus.com/order/memorial.

Final score: Champaign Police – 27, Champaign Fire – 24. GO BLUE!
