More Photos From the Back To School Event & A HUGE Thank You To Angel

Back To School Event
Hosted by the
Pocomoke City Police Department

Mrs. Cane stopped by with some very sweet young folks who seems a little shy but were all smiles for the camera.  All the children and parents who stopped by on Sunday were very appreciative...not too many students seemed excited to be going back to school so soon.

Police Dept. Open House Ceremonies
June 22, 2012
Another wonderfully planned and successful event for the community with many thanks given to Angel Thornes, who wears the title Executive Administrative Assistant for the Pocomoke City Police Department.
I'm going to bypass all the other "powers that be" for the moment and give "some love" to this dedicated person whose job at times could be for many, overwhelming.

For the past few years Angel has handled the police department community events that have taken place in Pocomoke doing a remarkable job every single time! This year, however, her duties included the moving the police department into their new building and organizing the nice Ribbon Cutting Ceremony/Open House held in June.

Some days you could find her in a closet organizing everything she could find to make the move to the new building run smoothly.......and planning ahead for the Open House yet still taking care of her normal everyday responsibilities. Keep in mind that while all this was taking place Angel was making plans for the annual National Night Out AND the Back To School event that took place on Sunday.

She was responsible for ordering the furniture that is now in place in the offices at the new police department. She has limitied funds to use, spent the money wisely and made some beautiful selections. But along with buying new furniture comes the disappointment of it sometimes being damaged in shipment. I happened to be in the new building that day in May when a desk was damaged and several men were struggling to move it. There was no air conditioning in the building at the time yet, as hot as it was in there and as disappointed as Angel was she carried on with a smile, got the job done, managed to proudly show me around. On the day of Open House the police department was in order and beautifully furnished.

And this is just a little of what she does.

I'm sure some of you are saying to yourselves that this is what she is paid to do. Probably so. But she doesn't have to pour her heart into these things like she does. I've seen her in action! And the one thing she is proud of is the support that comes from the local businesses and citizens. In her words the support is "phenomenal". ...and she's right!

Yet while managing all of these back to back events Angel remains focused, determined and dedicated to her job serving the community of Pocomoke City and those she works with.

And last but not least Angel makes a very serious effort to keep me informed so I can keep all of you informed.

So, many thanks Angel for all you do and continue to dofor the citizens of the community and surrounding areas and for me.

9:04 you're implying, based on your comment, that you know "the real story"

my guess is that you're trolling for negative comments, if not then tell us "the real story" my guess is that you are just full of crap

Today's Lesson~~~~Naysayer

"One who frequently engages in excessive complaining, negative banter and/or a genuinely poor and downbeat attitude. Naysayers are distinguished by their tendency to consistently view the glass half empty, make frequent one-way trips to negative town, and constantly emphasize the worst of a situation. They have the capacity to rant and whine for hours on end about the most insignificant inconveniences. They tend to travel solo, but have the keen ability to spread their pessimistic attitude to a group of unsuspecting bystanders and encourage others to employ their mindset.
Naysayers tend to blend in with those around them rather well, granted they have learned over the years to adapt to their surroundings. However, when the opportunity arises, their true nature will be exposed and they will stop at nothing to exclude others or bring a general sense of negativity to any situation.
Not to be confused with non-naysayers who fight against the negativity brought forth by naysayers, make the best of a situation and are not afraid to call out a naysayer on the spot."

Events such as this on and the NNO event are what build communities up. Thank you to Angel and the PCPD for hosting and working to unite everyone for the common goal of a greater community.
