Lodge 105 members Stan Elrod Blue helmet) and Griggs Wall (White helmet) recently rode in the 2015 Police Unity Tour from Portsmouth Virginia the Washington D.C. The ride is three days and 250 miles on a bicycle and raises money for the National Police Museum and Memorial in D.C. Each rider is responsible for raising $2,000 to participate and Lodge 105 was one of Stan and Griggs sponsors. Each rider also rides in memory of a fallen officer from the year before. Stan and Griggs rode in honor of Franklin County Deputy Cruz Thomas who was killed in the line of duty on May 21. 2014. Riders wear metal wrist bands with the fallen officers name engraved and at the end of the ride when they arrive at the memorial in D.C, riders present the wristbands to the fallen officers family. Pictured here is Stan Elrod and Griggs Wall on either side of Franklin County Sheriff Steve Thomas after presenting the wristbands to the family of Deputy Cruz Thomas.
