Last week a bank containing money for one of the Delmar Library’s programs was stolen from the front counter at the library. On Monday the money was replaced. From the Laurel Police Department:

On November 23,2009 The Laurel Police Department using funds collected during the Annual Ride for Kidsake donated $300.00 to the Delmar Library. The donation was given to help replace the money that was stolen from the Delmar Libraries “Teddy Bear Picnic” fund.

Good will takes care of a nasty deed.

    I found it interesting that the Laurel P.D. would give money to the Delmar Library but it certainly is a good cause. The Delmar Education Association gave the library a donation that replaced the money stolen also, unaware when they gave it that the LPD had already been there that day. Isn’t it wonderful that people are still willing to give so much in poor economic times.

    Great photo to go with a great deed. It is nice to see good news, even if it follows bad news. Our law enforcement officials never get the credit they deserve. I like to think of our fire departments and our local law officials as “The” government. Without them, all would be chaos.
