On Wednesday, April 19, 2017, the Indio Elks Lodge #1643 hosted the First Responders Recognition luncheon. The Elks treated all Police and Fire Department personnel with a lunch to honor the First Responders for their dedicated service to the community.
In addition to a great lunch, the Elks presented each agency with a plaque to recognize the men and women of public safety for their service. “We are very fortunate to be in a community that demonstrates its support for what we do. It makes our tough days a little easier knowing how much we are appreciated,” said Chief Mike Washburn, Indio Police Department.
