Rally to support deputy, sheriff’s office Saturday
KENT NARROWS — Beneath the Kent Narrows bridge is normally a place for people to park their cars. But on Saturday, Jan. 7, The Hogs and Heroes Foundation will host a community rally in support of Deputy Warren Scott Hogan, who was injured in the line of duty last week.
The Hogs and Heroes Foundation is a national nonprofit organization that supports military, public safety, wounded warriors and emergency medical workers throughout the United States. Its mission is to support those causes by hosting rallies, fundraising opportunities and motorcycle rides in honor of those who serve in public service. Though many members are motorcycle riders, National President Andrew “Devildoc” Mutchler said associate members do not have to be riders.
Beginning at 3:30 p.m. with a gathering, the official rally in support of
Hogan and the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office will begin at 4 p.m. The organizers ask participants to bring a flag or a supportive sign.
Mutchler said the event will begin with the Pledge of Allegiance and a prayer, followed by words from Queen Anne’s County Sheriff Gary Hofmann, Mutchler and Hogs and Heroes Foundation Vice President Lee “Scrib” Scribner.
“For the general public that may attend, we would hope they would get a sense of the fact that police officers are there to help us, and they sacrifice their lives every day for our freedoms here in the United States,” Mutchler said.
Mutchler said it is especially important for the police department and all members of law enforcement to know that there are community members behind them and their efforts.
