  • Share:
Name: Rochester Thank A Police Officer Day
Date: September 21, 2019
Event Description:

Join the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, Rochester Rotary Club, Holy Rosary Credit Union, Rochester Elks Lodge #1393 and Rochester Main Street in a city-wide celebration to "Paint the City Blue" to show our appreciation of our local police officers on Saturday, September 21, 2019, which is National Thank A Police Officer Day. 

Public spaces will be decorated with blue ribbons, bows and lights including the Rochester Commons, Parson Main, downtown light poles with flags and more. Many are volunteering to help with this effort along including Spaulding High School art students who will develop artwork that will be displayed at several downtown businesses.
Residents and businesses are invited to join us in thanking members of the Rochester Police Department by hanging a ribbon or bow in your front yard on a tree or on your mailbox, replace a porch light bulb with a blue one, string blue Christmas lights on a small tree or shrub, put up a yard sign or anything else in the spirit of the event. The group has purchased a limited number of bows, stickers and yard signs for distribution.  These items are available while supplies last at the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce at 18 South Main Street, Granite Steak & Grill at 11 Farmington Road and Holy Rosary Credit Union at 133 Brock Street in Rochester and donations will be accepted. All proceeds will be applied to additional supplies.

A Decorating Contest is being established and judges will travel around the City to see which business and which residence has the best display. 
For residences, the First place winner will be awarded $250, Second place winner will receive $150 and Honorable Mention Prize will receive $100. Decorating Contest prizes are sponsored by Hervey's Tire Co.
The winning business will receive a complimentary e-blast, sponsored by the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce.
Those wishing to have their business or residence judged should contact Tanya Hervey at

Thank You card stations have been set up at various locations in the city including the Chamber of Commerce, First Seacoast Bank, Frisbie Memorial Hospital, Holy Rosary Credit Union, Rochester Elks Lodge #1393, Rochester Public Library Children's Room, Service Credit Union's Walmart branch and Windjammer's Seafood Restaurant. Stop by one of these locations and fill out one of our "Thank You" postcards, or drop one of your own personal "thank you" cards off for our men & women in blue!
