Apple Valley Police Officer Tommie Booth presented an appreciation award to Apple Valley American Legion Post 1776 on Sept. 17 for its support of the police department’s participation in the Road to Hope 250-mile bicycle ride that provides funds to a summer camp for the children of fallen officers, many who have died in the line of duty. Booth and Sgt. Adam Tschida of the Apple Valley Police Department were riders this year. They were backed by Capt. Greg Dahlstrom and Officer Brian Plantz who provided logistical support in the way of bike repairs along the ride.
