The Rotary Club of Mission recently participated in the National Night Out event hosted by the City of Mission at which they interacted with the community through creative and fun activities.  Rotarians took “selfies” with kids, dressed little girls as princesses and gave out 300 popsicles on this warm day.  The Club also set out
out a banner for community members to sign with messages dedicated to local law enforcement officers.
Lupita Ramirez, Rotary Vice President, said, “Police Officers deserve our respect and appreciation for their work.  We are proud of their unwavering commitment to protecting our citizens, for ensuring the integrity of our justice system; and for serving on the front lines of our daily fight against crime and violence.  We want them to know that the community stands with them.”
Citizens expressed their support with  messages that read – “We support the BLUE.”  “Our Superheroes don’t wear capes.”
