The Saginaw Bay Yacht Club hosted the 100 Club of Bay County’s annual meeting Thursday, May 16.

Club President Jerry Somalski says members pay $200 a year with the money helping the family of a first responder who might be killed on the job. Somalski added the 100 Club is also providing grants for agencies to purchase equipment that would otherwise be unavailable. That includes $1,000 to Bay City’s Department of Public Safety to purchase individual first aid kits for all 53 officers.

Attendees also witnessed a demonstration by a State Police K-9 team and checked out equipment including a State Police helicopter plus a large armored vehicle operated by Bay County Sheriff’s Deputies.
