For the second year, Metter Advertiser and Metter Graphics have teamed up with individuals and the local business community to show our support for the Blue! Throughout the month of January, “Back the Blue” shirts and signs were sold on Metter Graphics’ online store. Proceeds from the sale will be divided between Candler County Sheriff’s Office and Metter Police Department to be used to purchase necessary supplies. Additionally, our local law enforcement officers will receive Back the Blue t-shirts at no charge.
“We are so excited to be able to partner with our community again this year to show our law enforcement community how much we appreciate all they do for us,” said Editor Jerri Goodman. “From patrolling our streets to keep us safe to escorting funeral processionals to stopping to shoot hoops with kids at the basketball courts, our officers show us every day how much they love Metter and Candler County. We cannot thank these individuals enough for all they do!”
Included in this week’s paper is a salute to our local law enforcement, complete with a glimpse of just how busy they were in 2020. Also, a “We Back Our Blue” flag pull out is included!
