The La Mesa Police Officers Association is hosting our third annual golf tournament on Friday July 13, 1:00 PM, at Salt Creek Golf Course in Chula Vista. Entry fee is only $80.00 per player and that not only includes the golf but also lunch beforehand and dinner afterwards. In addition to the golf, we are doing a helicopter ball drop. This is a fun event where all the golf balls that are sold are placed in a helicopter and then dropped onto a green. The three closest balls to cup will win a cash prize up to $2,000! Golf balls can be purchased for $10 each, $50 for six balls, or $100 for thirteen balls.
The proceeds from the tournament will not only benefit the La Mesa Police Officers Association but also the La Mesa National Little League and the La Mesa Peer Support.
A goal of the La Mesa Police Officers Association this year is to expand our annual “Christmas Family Adoption” program. For the last 17 years we have adopted several families each year to make their holidays a little brighter. We are hoping to expand this program to cover more underprivileged children at our local schools and more families in La Mesa.
The La Mesa National Little League has been serving the La Mesa community since 1953 and is need of some repairs to the local fields. There are currently over 270 families that are involved in the La Mesa National Little League and no child is ever turned down due to their family’s financial situation. It is the goal of the La Mesa Police Officers Association and La Mesa National Little League to give these kids the best fields to play on and make some lasting dreams with them!
The La Mesa Peer Support consists of La Mesa Police Department employees that have received specialized training dealing with Critical Incident Stress Management and EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. The Peer Support team provides support and assistance to police department employees and their families, in times of stress and crisis. The Peer Support Team may be utilized to support the community in situations of critical incidents, such as school shootings, natural disasters, and other traumatic situations. The Peer Support team has been active for the past 16 years and is very active in the California Peer Support Association. The Peer Support team receives limited funding from the City of La Mesa and can’t function to their full potential without the support of the LMPOA and community.
I hope you can join us for this fun event. More information including sponsorship opportunities can be found on our website www.lamesapoa.com or by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
