FORza 009 Ride to Remember

My hometown Lakewood Police Department

FORza riders gathering to meet at the Lakewood Police Department to honor the our fallen police officers. The "FOR" stands for Fallen Officers Ride and the "za" is in remembrance of the Forza Coffee Shop in Parkland - the sight of the worst single incident of officer fatalities in the State of Washington, which involved four Officers of the Lakewood Police Department last November 2009.

Today I brought and helped served some snacks and refreshments for the riders. Lakewood was their second stop today along their route of honoring our fallen officers across the State of Washington.

What a honor it is to stand along the side of our finest! Most of the riders involved in today's ride are active and retired Police Officers themselves.

Couldn't resist a picture next to a Rider and his Harley!

The ladies behind the badge! These ladies are wives of police officers and members of the Tacoma Police Family Association. They were great hostesses in providing drinks and snacks for the Riders.
