Heroes Catastrophe Relief Fund
Almost two years ago a relief fund for your heroes was conceived. Building the fund to a sustainable level has been slow. However, we are pleased to announce the generosity of an organization who just donated $10,000! They wish to remain anonymous but we want to acknowledge their gift of love which will help us help our fellow first responders when they fall victim to a natural disaster.
You can help our mission by contributing to the Heroes Catastrophe Relief Fund.

Accolade to outgoing officers
As the outgoing officers prepare to transition out of office, special recognition is due. Their hard work and determination led to tremendous fundraisers with expectations beyond our belief. With their service and guidance, our chapter attained a credible reputation in the communities of Orange and Alamance counties and reached an all-time high membership of thirty-nine.
THANK YOU for your talents, determination and commitment to the success of our chapter!
Blue Knights NC 10 of Orange/Alamance Counties to be immortalized at a national museum!
On July 2, 2017, our chapter made a donation to the National Law Enforcement Museum. Thanks to the generous donations of the members, we are proud to be a part of history and to help create a building that represents the profession and honors all law enforcement. As a result of our donation, our organization's name will be forever inscribed on the panels of the Glass Bridge in the museum that will form a "Thin Blue Line". This beautiful glass bridge will connect the east and west mezzanine levels and will overlook the Main Concourse of the museum.
After more than 20 years, the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund has raised funds to break ground and construction is currently underway for a national museum in our nation's capitol to honor those that serve and sacrifice and celebrate the profession of law enforcement.
We hope to be able to attend the opening ceremonies once the museum is complete.
