Our Photo from the Officer Josh Miktarian Scholarship Fundraiser

(Article courtesy of the Twinsburg Tribune at http://www.scriptype.com)

It was a rewarding feeling to have one of my photos from a recent fundraising event for Twinsburg Officer Josh Miktarian selected for inclusion into the October 2017 issue of the Twinsburg Tribune.  For a moment I felt transported back in time to my days as a part-time reporter for the Twinsburg Bulletin.  A big thank you to the staff at the Tribune and others for helping support the cause of a fallen Officer.  My prayers continue to be for peace.
