POLICE BENEFIT ASSOCIATION
Emporia Main Street presented the Emporia Police Benefit Association with a "Volunteer of the Year" award. During the past year, the members helped set up for community events such as the Dirty Kanza, Glass Blown Open and the ESU WelcomeBack Party for students. They also have fundraisers like the Dunk Tank at the Lyon County Fair and last year they held the first "Zombie Run". With the money they raise, they donate to several area groups - 2 area softbal teams, the EHS swim team, St. Francis, and the Special Olympics Golf Tournament. They also organized a toy drive with the Lyon County Sheriff's Office.
