Rotary, DCSO get together to reward youths doing good
Douglas County sheriff’s deputies now have a “ticket” to reward someone with – instead of issuing a warrant.
A new program, sponsored by the Minden Rotary Club and the DCSO, rewards youths who are “caught doing good” with coupons for ice cream.
“Young people in Carson Valley are in for a treat when they are spotted by a deputy doing an act of kindness,” said Larry Werner of Rotary.
The tickets are redeemable for ice cream cones at the Park Place AM/PM Mini Mart at Highway 395 and Waterloo Lane, south of Gardnerville. Roger Falcke of the AM/PM is a member of the club and is giving the Minden Rotary Club a great price, Werner said, that will allow officers to hand out 1,000 tickets.
If all goes well, he added, Minden Rotary will probably continue the program.
