22nd Annual Police Emerald Society of Baltimore Bull and Oyster Roast
November 17 @ 7:00 pm - November 18 @ 12:00 am$40.00
As President of the Police Emerald Society of Baltimore one of my most honored duties is to present two awards during our Annual Bull & Oyster Roast. This year we will be posthumously awarding the Lt. Owen E. Sweeney Valor award to Amy. Elaine Sweeney and family will be at the event to present the award to Tim, Debbie, Gary and Amy’s Sisters in honor of Amy.
The second award, the Sgt. Mark F. Parry Distinguished Service Award is being presented to Virginia State Police Sgt. Michael McCann for his dedicated service as a bag piper with the Metro Richmond Police Emerald Society Pipes & Drums Band. On a side note, Sgt. McCann was also the solo bag piper inside the church during Amy’s service at Mountain Christian Church. Lynne Parry and family will be at the event to present the award to Sgt. McCann.
Lt. Sweeney (BPD) and Sgt. Parry (BCoPD) were both members of the PESB at the time of their Line of Duty Deaths. We continue to honor their sacrifice and welcome the Sweeney and Parry families as our guests each year.
This event is attended by over 600 guests and will be a good event for officers directly affected by Amy’s death to come together and continue to honor her sacrifice.
