Help save a life!  Please consider donating blood next week at Dโ€™Orazio Ford.

Thank you Robert Bolser Country Financial Agency!

A few months back Bob Bolser presented a check for $2,250 to the Wilmington Police Department. The Operation Helping Heroes program through Country Financial recognizes local first responders for all they do in the community. When he made the donation, Bob asked that the funds be used at the discretion of the officers.

Officers were asked to present ideas of how they would like to use the funds and came up with the idea of recognizing the 20th anniversary of September 11th, and the thousands of first responders that were killed by terrorists that day. A memorial badge was designed that does just that. Wording on the badges (pictured below) say "20th Anniversary," "Never Forget," the officer's rank, "Wilmington, IL," the officers radio number, & "September 11, 2001." The center seal depicts the twin towers, the Pentagon, and the symbol for Pennsylvania where Flight 93 crashed, and both red & blue lines representing fire and police personnel that perished that day.

Thank you again Bob Bolser, for always supporting our police department.
