Officer Natasha Hindman represented Indian Shores Police Department by attending National Police Week in Washington D.C. last week.  National Police Week is a collaborative effort of many organizations dedicated to honoring America’s law enforcement community. The purpose of the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum is to honor the role of law enforcement, in service to society, by recognizing the sacrifices and valor of law enforcement, educating the community, and making it safer for those who serve.

The first Read and Feed since February 2020 of Fredrick Backman’s "Anxious People " was delicious fun! Now that we have one down, we’re ready to go into high gear.  Next up is "Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century". This 2017 nonfiction book by American journalist Jessica Bruder describes the lives of older Americans who, following the Great Recession from 2007 to 2009, adopted transient lifestyles traveling around the United States in search of seasonal work. The movie based on it was the best picture of the year for 2020 and featured real life characters from the book. These nomads were part of caring group of people who shared what they had, including meals. Our challenge will be to come up with a dinner to inspired by their culinary efforts. Mark the date: June 23 at 6 p.m.  Look for a flier next week.
