The Salvation Army Community Partners Fair was a huge success on Saturday.

The fair featured a blood drive, food drive, ewaste drop-off, and displays from many local organizations.

Thanks to “Radar” for the photos of the Concord Police’s new armored vehicle, which was on display at the fair. Also, thanks to the anonymous Claycordian who sent in a few of the pictures shown above.

Sooo… Do we know which military donated that vehicle to CPD? Perhaps the British Army?

Got to meet Radar in person today, now I can put a face to a name.

We stopped by. My son thought our new armored vehicle was pretty cool.

Right hand drive? Anyone who drives that thing will have to be certified to drive on the right side. Another expense and limited usage.

Damn thing still looks like somebody went crazy on an old Toyota.

I certainly do hope that it serves its purpose usefully. We certainly don’t need another money pit in this town. The City Council is bad enough…

Meangal’s bad grammar and stupid politics is a great combination.

“Anyone who drives that thing will have to be certified to drive on the right side.” – Exactly who will be doing the certification and under what authority do “they” have to make someone get certified?

Never heard of such a thing as “certified to drive on the right side”.
Many post office residential delivery vans are right side drive.

I have travelled over the world and had to suddenly adjust to right hand drive and found that the short time periods were really not a problem as you are hyped up on the difference. The problem comes when you move to a daily immersion of the different road rules and that introduction intensity eases off and suddenly a distraction on a left turn or a right turn can cause rather awkward moments.

The cops will be fine.
The post office guys though—they may after all retire and become Muni drivers- they you have to watch.

Edi at #9 ~ ~ ~ Enjoyed your quip in the last paragraph.
And it was nice to talk with you, if only for a few minutes, yesterday at Farmer’s Market!
