On Saturday, February 8, 2020, residents of the Monterey Yacht and Country Club (MYCC) held a golf scramble at their Executive Golf Course to show appreciation for EMT, Firemen, Police and Sheriff Department officers. Benefit proceeds were donated to the Explorers (youth interested in EMT/Fire/Law Enforcement careers).
EMT, Firemen, Police and Sheriff Department officers, along with the Explorers, were welcomed to this successful event in their honor by Kim Ryan. Robert Mecozzi, MYCC Board President, introduced U.S. Representative Brian Mast. Congressman Brian Mast honored FHP Trooper Joseph Bullock who had been shot February 5 when he stopped to help a motorist. William Schobel, Chief of the Martin CountyFire Department spoke next followed by Deputy Sheriff Joseph Angelico. The Honorable Mike Meier, Mayor of the City of Stuart, was the closing speaker.
