Victor-Farmington Rotary Club will continue its tradition of honoring law enforcement officers who serve the local community with a dinner on May 15 to coincide with National Police Week.
The Victor-Farmington community receives police coverage from the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office and New York State Police, Troop E.
President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls as National Police Week in 1962. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.
Victor-Farmington Rotary will honor police officers nominated by OCSO and NYSP to recognize their service to the community. Last year’s recipients were Deputy Cory Herendeen from OCSO and Trooper Daniel Eberly from Troop E Headquarters Patrol.
The club will honor and recognize retiring Sheriff Phil Povero for his career of service to the people of Ontario County.
Victor-Farmington Rotary has scheduled programs by both agencies during the weeks leading up to National Police Week as a part of its weekly luncheon agenda.
The Police Appreciation Dinner is scheduled for 6 p.m. on May 15 at Finn’s Tap Room and Party House, 14 Railroad St., Victor. Tickets cost $25. Reservations are required by May 8.
