ARIZONA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY OFFICERS WILL BE HONORED BY CHILDREN IN FATHER’S DAY TRIBUTE
Thursday, June 14, 2012 -
The young children will be reading a touching poem aloud to their father and some of his fellow officers. The poem, which is called “Cops are Daddies, too”, was written by the children’s mother, Barbara Nowlan.
While the poem is a tribute to the children’s loving father and his brave work as a police officer, it was written to apply to any law enforcement officer who is a father. The children recently turned the poem into a book with their own illustrations. Copies of the book have been printed, and will likely be available for purchase at the reading. The children will donate a portion of any earnings from book sales to the 100 Club of Arizona.
Barbara Nowlan, the wife of DPS Officer Robert Nowlan, and Sharon Knutson-Felix of the 100 Club will be available for interviews following the event.
When: Saturday, June 16, 2012
Time: 2:30 PM (media should arrive at 2:00 PM to set up)
Where: 2222 W. Encanto Blvd Phoenix (IIMPACT Training Room. Enter through the side door from the parking lot).
