The GFWC Swartz Creek Women’s Club presented a $500 check to the Metro Police Authority of Genesee County to help support K9s Rosco and the other Rosco. Club member Boots Abrams said the club’s annual rock-a-thon usually raises about $2,000 for the K9 program. The rock-a-thon takes place during Hometown Days, which was canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Club member Teresa Cannon said the group is “very, very happy and proud” to continue their support. Metro Chief Matthew Bade said the GFWC Swartz Creek Women’s Club is a “great partner,” and the donation came at the right time as the K9 account is getting low on funds.
