Crime Alert launches 'Ribbons of Respect' campaign

WYOMISSING, Pa. - A show of support for members of law enforcement is now in full swing in Berks County.

The second annual Crime Alert Berks County "Ribbons of Respect" campaign was launched during a special program at the Wyomissing Family Restaurant at 1245 Penn Ave. in Wyomissing on Monday.

The restaurant's owner, Hamid Chaudhry, is a longtime member of Crime Alert's board of directors, as well as a generous supporter of many community causes.

For the past few weeks, Chaudhry's restaurant and other businesses around Berks County have been providing blue ribbons to their customers.

The ribbons are meant to be displayed during the month of May to coincide with National Peace Officers Memorial Day on May 15.

You can still pick up a free ribbon at Wyomissing Family Restaurant and a number of other Berks businesses, including A to Z Vacuum at 350 N. Park Rd. in Wyomissing; the three Chick-fil-A restaurants in Berks County; Tina's Salon & Day Spa at 404 Penn Ave. in West Reading; Mortgage America at 1100 Berkshire Blvd. in Wyomissing; Denny's Electric, 4420 Pottsville Pike, Building 9, in Muhlenberg Township; and Century21 Park Road at 60 Commerce Drive in Wyomissing.

And while the Wyomissing Family Restaurant continues to hand out ribbons, Chaudhry and his staff are preparing to serve up their first Mother's Day feast on Sunday.

The all-you-can-eat buffet will feature a carving station with prime rib and ham, freshly grilled salmon and haddock, pulled pork and a variety of homemade desserts, including the restaurant's new self-serve sundae bar.

The cost is $21.99 for adults, $19.99 for seniors and $10 for children ages 4 to 8. Kids under 3 can eat for free.

The first 300 moms will also receive a long-stem rose.
