If you read last weeks National Night Out post, you might be thinking, "Live Taser Demonstration, what's that all about". Well it is exactly as it sounds. One brave soul has volunteered to allow Officer Anthony Aquiler to deploy a live taser cartridge against them as he would a suspect in the field. Two probes will be ejected from the cartridge and strike the volunteer, effectively releasing an electric shock to their neuro muscular system. The volunteer will have two individuals supporting them to prevent injury from a fall, and all will be wearing eye protection.

This is your opportunity to see someone get Taserd Live and In Person. Watching a Youtube video just doesn't compare to the real thing. Afterwards, you will be able to say: I was there, that night in the park, when someone actually allowed themselves to get hit with 50,000 volts right in front of me, and on purpose.

So make sure you come out for National Night Out, August 6th from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM at the Community Park. Let's get a huge crowd to cheer on and pump up our brave volunteer. We promise it will be ELECTRIFYING!!

I also would like to bravely serve my community by being the first to volunteer to administer the tasing πŸ˜‰ Joking of course. Props to whoever really volunteered.

...is this the hand held taser, shields, or prongs?

How do I sign up to be tasered?

Is it gonna be you again Dave? Makes me laugh every time I see a post about tasers.

The Penbrook 125th Celebration was a great success! It was well attended, and people left with a synopsis of the past and a hope for the future, and a mug with some chocolate covered pretzels to take home.

Thanks to Mrs. Manherz for making time to share Penbrook's history, and for Mayor McDonald for sacrificing some very much needed sleep after working a double shift to come and speak to us about Penbrook's future. We were thankful to have his lovely family there, as well.

Thank you to the Lions for hosting the potluck event and partnering with the Historical society to help Penbrook celebrate their 125th year. Many thanks to the historical society for the mugs, the cake, and the historical pictures to view
