Eric Lipp, National Manager of the Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program, sent us another Eddie Eagle update from a Night Out in Georgia:
Chief Gary Broden of the Avondale Estates Police Department in Avondale Estates, Georgia, decided to pull out all the stop for their 2011 National Night Out event at the Dewey Brown Memorial Plaza this August. Chief Broden jumped on the phone, made a few calls and borrowed an Eddie Eagle Mascot Costume from NRA's Law Enforcement Division.
Along with tons of food, the event was filled with a wide variety of safety vendors. There was the Police Department's Bomb Disposal and K-9 units, a child identification program known as Georgia Chip, and of course the Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program. According to the Chief, it was a big hit!
We were more than happy to lend Chief Broden and the Avondale Estates Police Department a mascot costume for this worthwhile event. Here's looking forward to Georgia's National Night Out in 2012!
