The Board of Directors unanimously voted to change the name of our monthly public safety recognition award to the Sam Brownlee Service Above Self Award. In this way, our club will honor the memory of Sheriff's Deputy Brownlee, who recently gave his life in the line of duty, as we continue to honor the dedication, bravery and sacrifice of the police, sheriff, fire and ambulance personnel who do so much for us.

Our first awards under the new name will be presented on December 9. Three awards will be presented to members of the Sheriff's Office, Fire Department and the Greeley Police Department.

Heather Brownlee, Sam's wife will attend as our very special guest.
