Police Ball
They might not be working together anymore, but they can still be friends.
During a regular meeting on Apr. 11, Coaldale town council addressed an invitation from the Lethbridge Regional Police Service (LRPS) Chief Robert Davis for their annual 2016 Lethbridge Police Ball.
Last year, the ball was attended by more than 400 people, including law enforcement, members of local government, business owners, and community partners.
The evening features a meal, presentations, and live entertainment. This year’s event will feature a live and silent auction with proceeds benefiting the Missing Children Society of Canada.
During discussion, Coun. Roger Hohm suggested it was important to have a presence at the ball because of the recent changeover to RCMP service and the ending of the professional relationship between Coaldale and LRPS.
Council also discussed whether there might be an opportunity to thank LRPS for their service, and whether it would be an appropriate event to do so. They also discussed whether it would be appropriate to attend the ball.
“The question is whether it’s appropriate or inappropriate,” said Mayor Kim Craig.
“We were invited, so I’d say (attendance) is appropriate.”
Following discussion, council passed a motion to send two council members and their spouses to the event at a cost of $75 per person. The Lethbridge Police Ball will take place June 4 at the Coast Hotel in Lethbridge.
