Honorary Colonels to host inaugural luncheon

Honorary Colonels to host inaugural luncheon
Posted on 04/23/2014

Law enforcement officers see and experience dramatic things every day that the rest of us never have to encounter, and they put their lives on the line every time they put on the badge. In an effort to support Cottonwood Heights Police officers, several local business owners have formed an Honorary Colonels Association. Their inaugural luncheon will be held on Tuesday, May 20 at noon. (Location and RSVP information are included in the flyer below.)

The honorary colonels have a long and well-established history with other law enforcement agencies in the Salt Lake Valley, including Salt Lake City Police, West Valley City and Sandy City.  Recently local businessman Mike Lasater, who lives in Cottonwood Heights but has been a member of the West Valley City Honorary Colonels for some time, decided it was time to bring attention to the law enforcement officers in this community.

“We want to be able to support and assist officers and their families in times of need,” said Lasater.

The honorary colonels look for many opportunities to help officers and their families, especially after the death of an officer, an illness or other traumatic events. They host community fundraisers such as concerts and golf tournaments in order to accomplish that goal.

The Cottonwood Heights Honorary Colonels Association welcomes local business owners and entrepreneurs who are interested in helping local law enforcement officers and their families. If you are interested in more information about the honorary colonels, please contact Mike and Chelsey Lasater at 801-897-1200.
