The reception will be open to the public and will begin at 4 p.m., Thursday, November 19, at St. Peter’s Church, Father Ahren’s Room, at 216 Broadway in Jefferson City, and lasting until 7 p.m. All associated with the law enforcement and fire fighter community in the Jefferson City community and their families are welcome to attend.
