Aquarius Team Members Wear R.E.D. To Support U.S. Servicemen and Servicewomen Deployed Overseas

Aquarius Raises $6,138 for Remembering Everyone Deployed 

LAUGHLIN, NEV. – December 4, 2017 – Aquarius Casino Resort Team Members helped to paint the river R.E.D. on Friday, November 10 in support of our military members, past and present by wearing their R.E.D. (Remember Everyone Deployed) T-shirts. The mission of RedShirtFridays.org, a non-political organization dedicated to honoring our nation’s men and women serving our country overseas.

Team Members were given the opportunity to donate $5 and receive a R.E.D. T-shirt to wear at work during the “Casual for a Cause” Friday. At the conclusion of the fundraiser, Aquarius Team Members presented a $4,315 check to board members of the Tri-State Military Moms, Inc. representing 100% of the proceeds raised.  Plus an additional, $1,823, for a total of $6,138, was given to the Moms from the additional sales that continued through Veterans Day weekend.

“Aquarius Casino Resort has the best team members that enjoy helping in every way possible.” said Aquarius General Manager Sean Hammond. “And what better cause than our Military Moms!”

All proceeds were donated to the Tri-State Military Moms, a local nonprofit organization that sends care packages to U.S. troops deployed overseas. The organization is also responsible for displaying all the banners on Highway 95 in Bullhead City, Arizona, showing the sons, daughters, fathers, mothers, grandsons, granddaughters, and all family members that are currently serving our country.  They also organize coming home celebrations for our returning service members. 

“The Tri-State Military Moms consider the Aquarius Team members as taking hospitality to another level…Ambassadors of their organization, with a passion for giving, far beyond their work assignments.

They may never know the military service member who receives a package from home due to their generosity and support, or that family who has a sponsored banner on our “Heroes Highway”, but we have seen and heard the impact from so many of our military and their families who are the recipients of their generosity.  We are so humbled and grateful to Sean Hammond, his team, and all the people who contribute to the ongoing promotion of wearing R.E.D each Friday!” said Cindy Frizelle, President Tri-State Military Moms, Inc.

The R.E.D. T-shirt, Red Shirt Friday’s concept is part of the ongoing mission of RedShirtFridays.org and its founder Lloyd (Doc) Hofmeister, a U.S. military veteran.

LHCPD Awarded Governor’s Office Of Highway Safety Grant

LHCPD Awarded Governor’s Office of Highway Safety Grant

The Lake Havasu City Police Department was awarded a $20,000 grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) to be used for conducting DUI enforcement operations for the 2017-2018 federal fiscal year, which runs from October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018.  This grant provides the Lake Havasu City Police Department the ability to increase DUI enforcement capabilities by assigning personnel on overtime to concentrate on DUI enforcement activities.

This grant is being used mainly during holiday weekends, to concentrate on DUI enforcement in an effort to remove or deter impaired drivers from being on the roadway. This makes driving safer for all motorists.

As part of the grant safety contract, the police department is required to maintain and submit statistics to the GOHS on a regular basis.

Public Information Officer:  Sergeant Tom Gray (928) 855-1171
