Honoring Law Enforcement Officers

 

The Lyon Co KFB is proud of our law enforcement and emergency responders. Thank you for all that you do.

The county has pulled together after the recent fatal shooting of KSP Trooper Ponder. A prayer vigil will be held at the court house at Veteran's Court on Sunday, Sept 20 at 7:30pm for Officer Ponder, according to Judge Executive, Wade White.
Citizens are wearing blue ribbons, flags are at half mast, and blue ribbons placed on the flag poles to show support of our emergency responders.
