On Friday, all employees in every area of public safety in Coweta County will be honored at the 16th Annual Public Safety Appreciation Luncheon at the Coweta County Fairgrounds.

“It is a good way to blend the cities and the county,” said Norma Haynes with Newnan-Coweta Public Safety Foundation Inc. “It is a day of fellowship and fun for all those who deserve our appreciation.”

Haynes said the luncheon is open to all public safety employees who work for the county or for any cities in Coweta County. This includes law enforcement, public works, those who work at the Justice Center and Coweta County Jail and more. Haynes said they are expecting between 300 and 400 public safety employees.

The luncheon is provided by the committee members of the Newnan-Coweta Public Safety Foundation Inc., and many of the cities’ and Coweta County’s elected officials will be serving the meals.

Donations are being accepted by the foundation at any time to help pay for the luncheon, Haynes said, and any leftover funds will go toward a fund to help any public safety employees and their families who may have outstanding financial or medical needs.

Also, anyone interested in adding to the luncheon are welcome to bring any homemade desserts to the fairgrounds by 10:30 a.m. Friday.

This week, florists in Newnan will be providing Loyal Blue Bows to businesses and to anyone who wants to show their appreciation for public safety, Haynes said. These are intended to be placed on doors or windows around town to honor members of public safety.
