Project Blue Light honors fallen police officers and the families who carry their legacies
Bay City —
Full color guard presentation, a moment of reflection, prayer and silence for those whose end of watch came too soon.
Dozens of people packed the First Presbyterian Church in Bay City to participate in Project Blue Light.
Members of the Bay-Arenac ISD Career Center invited police departments from all over mid-Michigan and surviving family members of fallen officers to the service, it's their way of saying thank you.
The students presented wreaths wrapped in blue ribbons to the families and the departments.
They also shared stories of why Project Blue Light is important to them.
Organizers say they hope Project Blue Light helps future police officers understand the consequences that come with the badge and never forget the men and women in blue that came before them.
