Donuts with a Deputy event was big success

Donuts with a DeputyThe third annual Donuts with a Deputy event was hosted this past Saturday by the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office at Wilson Elementary School.

Approximately 450 were in attendance to interact with deputies and animal control officers over donuts and coffee.  Children and adults were given a scavenger hunt designed to learn a special fact about each deputy present.

A coloring contest was held for the children, which will be judged by the ACSO, and winners will receive a nice prize which will be specially delivered.  Deputies held a K-9 demonstration, which was enjoyed by all in attendance.

“The event was an absolute success for our community and the ACSO, and it could not have been possible without the support of the entire community,” said Sheriff Donald Smith.

That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year.
