The Jerome Elks Lodge #1361 honored the Clarkdale Police Officer and Fireman of the Year with an Award Ceremony held at the lodge on Sept. 11. Ron Ekholm, Patrol Officer, was selected by his fellow officers. He is the go-to man if you want to get anything done. Ron does a lot of extra that helps the department run smoothly. Capt. Matt Robertson, Fireman of the year, was hired May 2010 and is the Chief Officer for A-Shift and coordinated the Districts EMC System. Over 60 members and family attended the event.
