Mena/Polk Senior Activity Center hosted area law enforcement officers during lunch on Wednesday, August 24, 2106 to say thank you for their dedication to keep Polk County safe. Sara Holliday, Executive Director of the Center said, “We want to recognize all the sacrifices you give for each and every one of us.”
Around two dozen officers were fed a delicious meal at the Center, and for those unable to attend, to-go meals were prepared.

Board Member Jerry Smith said to the large crowd in attendance, “We certainly appreciate all you do and for being our line of defense. We thank you.”
