Accepting the challenge!

A very new member of NPWA accepted the challenge for doing something nice to say "thank you" to our law enforcement. Here is what Beckylinm did:

I accepted the challenge and made some brownies for my husband's and my city pd. After an 11 hour day, I was struggling a bit, but it felt good to do it.

Great job! Thank you for participating. I'm sure the department loved it!

Kimber49 contributes for Police Week

Another member of NPWA, Kimber49, had this to say about what she is doing for National Police Week:

I'm getting coffee gift cards for DH's squad. Historically, a few of the wives have provided
food to the department on Wednesday of police week.

AgentWife contributes to Police Week

One of the NPWA wives, AgentWife, had the following to say about what she is doing for National Police Week:

I am making pretty cupcakes to send with DH to work. I'm just doing a sky blue type frosting so it doesn't taste bitter. I'll post pics of my pretty cupcakes! It will be my first attempt with a couple of the tips I'll be using.

Thanks AgentWife!
