Kelahna Miller is this year’s Chief for a Day for the Bonney Lake Police Department.

Part of her duties as “chief” are that she’ll be seen at local events with the police department periodically throughout the year.

From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Bonney Lake Community Church, the Police Department is hosting a garage sale fundraiser with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Miller and her family.

The department is seeking donations of items to sell including household items, tools, furniture, kitchenware, sporting goods and anything with the potential to be sold.

Cash donations are also accepted. To donate, contact the police records department at 253-863-2218.

On August 21, Miller will be honored along with other police department’s chiefs in a ceremony at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Center.

The 34 chiefs will get to spend a day focused on them and not their illness. They will be transported to the training center in limousines with a police motorcade.

Once at the center, they will be sworn in and get to experience presentations and demonstrations from the agencies.

An online auction is available for people to donate money to the Chief for a Day program. The auction can be found online.
