This is what community looks like. Thanks to all in the community who are supporting this and many other efforts. So many people doing good things.PLEASE READ UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM

I would like to thank the CUSTOMERS of Bald Bee Man honey who donated and/or bought bears today for the fundraiser for RPD Officer Seara Burton. I stated I'm going to be transparent on everything, so here are the breakdowns of what OUR customers raised today. The honey bear total will include some $8 bears that we started selling after we ran out of $6 bears.
We sold 164 bears total.

Honey Bears: $1,018
Cash donations: $ 644.49
Grand total: $1,662.49

Special thanks to another local beekeeper (who asked to remain anonymous) who added some of his honey to this effort.

This grand total will go as requested to the Blue Angels on behalf of Officer Seara Burton and her family. I will post a photo of the receipt as soon as the donation is completed to show that in fact, all of it was given.

THANKS to ALL the citizens and businesses who are coming together for Officer Seara!
Sincerely
Jerry Toschlog, the Bald Bee Man

UPDATE:
I just had a friend of mine who wishes to remain anonymous donate $360 to make the total $2022!!!!

A message from Mayor- Dave Snow.The last several hours have felt like an eternity for our team as we’ve all struggled with the reality of this tragic event. Office Burton, her family, the Richmond Police Department, and our city team have received a tremendous outpouring of love and support from this community, local and state elected officials, and citizens from other cities around Indiana. Richmond has stepped up in droves to support our officers. Over the next week, you may see a larger presence of Indiana State Police in the city as they assist our department. I want to thank State Superintendent Doug Carter and our State police for their services during this difficult time. We thank everyone for your continued prayers and messages of solidarity and comfort. It means a lot right now, and we know our police department will continue to need your kindness in the days to come. Officer Burton is a brave young officer who put her life on the line daily so all of us could live in a safer community. Right now, she is in a difficult fight, and we are all fighting with her. If you are privileged to know Officer Burton, you know she is a strong, resilient woman, and it’s her strength and your prayers that will give her the best chance to win this fight. If you would like to show your support, a prayer vigil is being held at the South entrance of the City Building at 7 pm on Friday, August 12. We continue to be humbled by the service of our officers and their families to our community. We are a stronger community because of their commitment and dedication to all of us. ...

Small businesses in downtown Richmond have been through many challenges over the decades. However this may be the longest challenge ever, and is now at the door of one of the newest family owned businesses. But this community will keep showing them support because that’s what community does. Please remember all the businesses downtown by making a little extra effort to park and walk and enjoy all they have to offer. It will be worth it!Road is being torn up in front of our place, but that won't stop us from providing breakfast and lunch today! Come on down for breakfast or spaghetti and meatballs for lunch! ...

I had lunch there today and it was great. Be prepared to walk a little, but exercise never hurt anyone.

I picture them getting rid of the road and putting the Promenade back, including those weird 1960's fountains. The road was obviously not the solution to getting people downtown. Even when it is not being worked on it doesn't bring the numbers needed to help business really thrive down there. Road or not. Construction or not. I fear the problem is humans in modern society who crave more plastic and comfort over real experiences and healthy habits. No fountains, trees, and safe places to walk and hang out will change anything until we change ourselves.

It is, at most, about 350 yards to a parking lot.

Style Tribe has been going strong for six years and counting! So thankful for my locals supporting our little tribe and shopping small! It’s meant the world to us-especially during the past two years! ♥️ #ShopSmall #supportlocal ♥️😘

Why is the road being torn up?
