On the evening of Dec. 12, the Lodi Police Partners volunteers celebrated their 20th anniversary of service. Family and friends were there to be part of this great evening. A delicious dinner was prepared and served by Lee Patterson (retired Lodi police officer) and his helpers: retired and active officers, dispatchers and front office ladies.

The event committee consisted of Steve Carillo (retired, LPD), Lt. Chris Jacobson, Patsy Methvin, Paula O Keefe, Capt. Tod Patterson, Teresa Fulwiler, Heather Kirschenman, Lt. Fernando Martinez, Lee Patterson and our Partners director, Chet Somera (retired LPD).

A beautiful invocation was offered by Patsy Methvin. Vocals were sung by Emily Higgingbottom, and at the end of the evening Ivan Suess involved everyone in karaoke. We found we have some good vocalists in our group!

Special guests for the evening were Larry Hansen (retired chief, LPD) and Jeanie Biskup (retired Partners director), who originally set up and activated Partners 20 years ago. A representative from Rep. Jerry McNerney’s office presented Partners with certificates of achievement for 20 years. Chet Somera presented certificates of achievement to the Lodi Police Department from Capt. Chris Piombo. Chet also presented the group of four ladies with a 20-year pin to be worn on the uniform. These four Partners are Charlene Burton, Eileen Denney, Bonnie Mauch and Pat Freeman.

All the Partners are very pleased to be active members of the Lodi Police Department and to say that we helped the City of Lodi save over $9 million through our efforts. We will continue to help the police department whenever and however we can in years to come.

If anyone is interested in joining a wonderful organization to help our Livable, Lovable Lodi, call 209-333-6886 for information.
