Thankful for protection

Dear Editor:Last Sunday, we had our beautiful Downey Christmas Parade. A thank you to the Downey Police Department for our safety while myself and over 25 volunteers from Keep Downey Beautiful were picking up trash after the parade, including officers Sean Penrose, Rod McNeil, Angel Villegas, Mark Haxton, Chris Maher, Noah Nagel and Dan Murray. A special thanks to Keep Downey Beautiful's coordinator, Carol Rowland, for coordinating us all in "keeping Downey beautiful." Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all! -- Michelle Frase, Downey
