Sara Trout who works in Henderson Center wants to make sure a kind deed doesn’t get missed. She wrote us, “Out of all the tragedy in Florida, the good deeds of our police have gone brushed under the rug. I haven’t seen any other post about it.” She drew our attention to Eureka Police spreading flowers and smiles throughout the city on Valentine’s Day.
“We really appreciate all of their efforts and presence in our community,” she wrote on her business page. “And, of course, we love the flowers!”

This is the second year in a row that Eureka Police have passed out flowers. Their Facebook page shows Chief Steve Watson handing out flowers at the Senior Resource Center, Old Town, and other areas. The EPD’s Facebook page credits Sun Valley for “donating the beautiful flowers.”
“Receiving a single tulip was the highlight of my day , ” Trout posted.
Smiles from recipients were bright–though we must admit the dog looks skeptical. [Photo from EPD]
