SA Fire Museum (behind the Alamo) No. 1 Fire Station
We will open the Museum on Saturday, September 5th (Next Saturday), to sell 2020 Fiesta Medals, 10am to 2pm (or until we run out of medals)
Some people believe that these will be "collectors items" due to the fact that they commemorate the 2020 Fiesta that didn't happen! It can also be used as a keychain. A photo of the medals is attached.
Medals will be $8 each, tax included. No online, phone, or mail orders, must purchase at the Museum.

Subject: SAPD ( Retired ) Dave Putnam, Owner of Alamo City Gold and Silver
Guys, I just got off the phone with David Putnam, owner of Alamo City Gold and Silver. He has been battling Covid 19 himself and has been in the hospital for 8 days. He is now released and Covid negative.
As you know, Dave has made " End Of Watch " Pendants (Badges) for many years for Officers who have given their lives in the Line of Duty. This includes Officers dying from Covid 19. There have been over a 100 Officers who have died from this disease nationwide. That's NOT counting the officers who have died from gunshot, motor vehicles, etc. The Pendants are given to the next of kin with an accompanying letter thanking them for the service and sacrifice of their loved one.
He is over a 100 Pendants behind. He, again, is asking for donations to help offset the cost of the pendants. Each pendant is approximately $130.00 each. He pays for this out of his pocket. He has set up a GoFundMe account. You can access this Fund by going SADiamonds.com. There is a GoFundMe attachment.
Dave is asking for any donations you can spare. Even $5.00 would help.
I told him maybe he is taking on too much, but this is something he starting doing years ago, and he doesn't want to stop. This is Dear to his Heart. I'm asking as a friend, if you can afford to help in ANY AMOUNT, please do.
Thanks, Mike Ross

"Murder at Toltec Gorge" is a new book I've written. It's historical fiction, set in 1927. Best source is Amazon, and there are several reviews posted.
It draws on some experiences while at SAPD. Profits are used for charity work. Hope you'll check it out... Thanks!
