A community drive to raise funds to replace the Cedaredge Police Department’s retiring K-9, Buddy, got a boost last week from the Surface Creek Valley Lions Club. The club contributed $300 to the CPD’s efforts to find Buddy’s successor. At left, Lions Club member Bill Miller presents a check to Police Chief Robert Yant. Looking on are Sgt. Dan Sanders, Buddy’s partner, and Mayor Pat Means who is also a Lions Club member. “We feel this donation will provide a real service for our whole valley,” Means said.
