A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH has been issued for Austin, Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Houston, Lee, Madison, Montgomery, San Jacinto, Trinity, Walker, Waller, and Washington Counties until 8pm. Severe thunderstorms are possible with large hail and strong, damaging winds being the main concern. A brief, isolated tornado threat cannot be ruled out, as well.
BRAZOS COUNTY - Local Law Enforcement Officers are participating in the Special Olympics Tip-a-Cop fundraiser. This year Tip-a-Cop will be held at the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant at 1601 University Drive East in College Station. Officers from the Bryan Police Department, College Station Police Department, Brazos County Constables, Brazos County Sheriff’s Department, Texas A&M University Police Department, Texas Department of Public Safety and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will assist the wait staff of the Texas Roadhouse for tips. Officers will refill drinks and assist the public in any way possible to collect tips, all of which will directly benefit the Special Olympics in our area.
Chiefs from each department will be door greeters and vehicles from each department will be in the parking lot on display.
Law Enforcement officers are keepers of the flame for the Special Olympics and raise money for the Special Olympics each year. Officers also participate in a Torch Run every year to the Special Olympics State games and volunteer time working security at games held here in the Brazos Valley.
We ask that you take the family out to dinner at the Texas Roadhouse on July 23rd & 24th, 2014 (this Wednesday and Thursday) from 5:30pm – 10:00pm for a good meal and a good time with local Law Enforcement Officers. It will be fun for the whole family, a positive impact on our community, and your tips for these officers will directly benefit a great cause and a great asset to the Brazos Valley.
