Darrie Daniels of the Tyler-Rose City Kiwanis Club presented the city of Tyler Police Department with a Patriot Award recently.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the team at Chief Jimmy Toler and the Tyler Police Department have shown continued commitment to helping residents of Tyler and surrounding communities stay safe, happy and healthy.

“These awards are given to people who go above and beyond what’s expected, and the Tyler Police Department and Chief Toler are great examples of this. They have worked with businesses and residents throughout the pandemic to make sure Tyler residents are safe,” said Daniels, the 2020-2021 Tyler-Rose City Kiwanis Club president.

The Patriot Award was developed by the Tyler-Rose City Kiwanis Club as a way to thank local individuals, businesses and service organizations for their work in our communities. The 2020 recipients were chosen for their continued commitment to serving Tyler, Smith County and all of East Texas through the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to the Patriot Awards, the Tyler-Rose City Kiwanis Club supports local leadership programs for all ages with K Kids, McAfee Reading Program, Builder’s Clubs, Key Clubs, CKI at UT Tyler, and an Aktion Club.

The Kiwanis Club also co-sponsors the Spirit of Christmas Food Drive with Brookshire Grocery Co., takes Santa to the Tyler Day Nursery to deliver presents, funds scholarships for high school students, and provides a range of other community services.

Join the Tyler-Rose City Kiwanis Club for a meeting every Thursday at 7 a.m. via Zoom.
