The Grass Valley Downtown Association and the Grass Valley Police department hosted a lunch at Christopher’s Deli to celebrate the many volunteers who donate countless hours to help police activities throughout the year.

The lunch and pins awarded for hours served is a way that both the department and the downtown association can recognize the volunteers good work. This year’s top winner, Del Mack, has worked with the department for over 15 years, and this year surpassed 4000 hours served.  Volunteers were recognized for 250 , 500, 750, 1000, and 1500 hours served. One volunteer, Ed Thomas, obtained over 2000 hours in the last three years. Marks praised all the volunteers for their contibutions.
