I was able to put together a June President’s Corner, but I wasn’t able to get it posted.
Here is how it read:
I apologize for not getting this out at the beginning of the month. With high school graduations and family, I missed my deadline.
Lots happened in May 2016. In addition to Holly Archer, (April appointment to the board) at the general meeting, the alumni voted Terry Kratzer and Delia Carrillo to the board. Terry will serve a two year term as he is replacing a board member who stepped down, and Delia will serve a 3 year term. Please help me in welcoming them to the board.
Just a reminder that we do not have board meetings in the summer. We will resume regular meetings in September. Enjoy the summer.
For those of you who don’t know, Sammy V retired this month. Thank you sir for your service to the citizens of Thornton.
This month’s ALUMNI in ACTION:
May 20th Torch Run was a huge success again this year. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped with it.
May 21st Thorntonfest was hot and to those who helped with this event…thanks!!!

June 8 & 9 SWAT SCHOOL
June 18th Range Day (Continuing Education)
Things to Watch For:
July 4th-Help with Fireworks at Carpenter Rec Center
Now, here is July’s President’s Corner:
Yesterday was the 4th of July and we had another amazing, successful year. This year, the TCPAAA were paired with a CERT (this is Civilian Emergency Response Team) team member. It was a lot of fun. Please consider signing up next year.
If nothing else, this event brings to the forefront the desperate need for Alumni matching shirts for these types of events. Those who wore their blue shirts last night, thank you, but they are definitely not the material we want to be wearing in 90 degree weather for 6 hours. If you have any suggestions of apparel, please contact Janelle or myself.
We have all had an extremely busy summer, and this is just a reminder that we will not be having a board meeting this month. We will resume our meetings in August.
We received word that the next Thornton Citizen’s Police Academy Class is full. Thanks Gregg Beary and Matt Barnes for taking care of this. In addition, please remember to check your email often. We are trying to get out this year’s badges to those who have not yet picked them up.
In June we only had a few volunteers for SWAT school this year. It was a HOT one, and thanks to those who participated. The SWAT team appreciates it.
I would like to personally thank Sheriff McIntosh for helping Toby put together an awesome, amazing, fun-filled range day for TCPAAA members. This day too, got hot, but was worth every minute. We, as an association would like to do something special for Sheriff McIntosh and his team, who took such good care of us. Not to mention, the Thornton PD staff who, the day before Father’s Day, spent their time teaching. Please send ideas to for a thank you to Toby or myself.
See TCPAAA EVENTS page for full details:
Things to watch for:
Please look for August volunteer opportunities in the EVENTS section of the website, the new recruits need us to volunteer for their building clears and high risk stops.
Thanks again for volunteering to help out our Police Department as much as you do. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. Have a great rest of the month and I promise to be more on time.
