Next Meeting and Much More

Fellow Emeralds,

Our next meeting is scheduled to be on Wednesday, 9/9 at the Los Angeles Police Academy at 1900 Hrs.

The recent fires in the Los Angeles vicinity have devestated vast areas and their has been much property loss and tragically, loss of life.

Our Society expresses our sympathies on the loss of Los Angeles County Firefighters Ted Hall and Arnie Quinones, lost in the line of duty when their emergency response vehicle went over the side and fell 800' into a steep canyon during fire suppression activities in the city of Palmdale. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends and brothers and sisters in the Fire Service. Funeral services will be held at Dodger Stadium on 9/12 at 1000 Hrs. Sympathy cards will be sent from our Society for both of the fallen.

Celtic Arts Center 6th Annual Celtic Concert Series- The Los Angeles Police Emerald Society Pipes and Drums kicks off another GREAT night of traditional Celtic music and dance, featuring Seattle's The McKassons, San Diego's Highland Way, Slugger O'Toole, Ken O'Malley and Irish step dancers!

The event is on Sunday, 9/20 and begins at 1900 Hrs. The Ford theatre grounds open 2 hours prior to evening performances to give patrons a chance to relax and eat in the beautiful terraced entryway or amphitheatre. Bring your own food and beverage (alcohol is allowed) or order from the on-site concessions.

This will be a fantastic night and Emerald Society members are encouraged to attend and wear your Emerald Society shirts to display our pride and support! Members get a 10% discount on tickets by calling 323 461-3673. Tickets are ony 20 or 22 dollars when purchased by 9/13! What a deal!
