On June 29, I wore a gold charm bracelet to the Farmer’s Market. I did not notice that it was missing from my wrist until I arrived home and after my walk on Vipond Drive around Lakeside Loop and China Creek. It has a charm that is dated 9/22/67, the date of my first born son’s birth. I don’t usually wear this but that day I did.
I called the police department and was told that I could come in and sign a lost/missing item report and someone would be there. I arrived at 4:40 p.m., 20 minutes before the office closed. I approached the window and a nice woman went to get a deputy. To my surprise, the police Chief Ivan Minsal came out and took my report. He was very professional, kind and I felt truly attended to. We are so very fortunate to have such a thorough and pleasant police chief.
A few days later I did find my bracelet in my yard. I am grateful for the help at the police department that they took the time, especially at the busiest holiday of the year (July 4), to attend to my request for help.
