Record Observer - - Front Page -

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.
