Honoring the local heroes

— Submitted photo Members of Hamilton County SOS (Saving our Servants) have placed blue ribbons on the posts in front of City Hall in Webster City. They will be passing out free blue ribbons to honor local law enforcement on Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m. at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church parking lot.

In honor of President’s Day, Serving Our Servants, along with students from Webster City High School who created the mural that was placed in the lobby of the Webster City Police Station, wanted to honor our local heroes. They have placed blue ribbons outside of the police station.

“These officers, deputies and state troopers risk their lives for us, without hesitation,” said Kristin Ruppel of SOS. “The community supports them.”

The group is asking Webster City residents to put up blue ribbons on trees or posts in their yards to show their united support this week for area officers.

SOS will be passing out free blue ribbons on Sunday, Feb. 18 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at St. Pauls Lutheran Church parking lot. Motorists will also be given the option to put blue painters tape on the rear windshield of their car to show support. Webster City’s True Value is sponsoring the event and providing the blue tape.
