FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fresh Market East Ogden and Ogden Police join forces to Pay Tribute to
Officer Nate Lyday
OGDEN CITY (April, 26, 2021)—Almost a year after Officer Nate Lyday was killed in the line of duty, Fresh Market East Ogden and the Ogden City Police Force honored his memory with the 1st Annual Ogden City Police Fallen Officer Memorial Golf Scramble.
All the funds raised from the event, which took place last Friday at the El Monte Golf Course, will be used to send the Lyday family to Washington D.C. to witness as Officer Lyday’s name is placed on the Fallen Officer Wall later this year.
Officer Nate Lyday was a former team member who was respected and revered by those who interacted with him at the East Ogden location of Fresh Market. Fresh Market is a proud sponsor of this event.
Nick Douros, the Store Director at East Ogden Fresh Market, said “Working with Nate was an honor. His loss was felt deeply by his family at Fresh Market East Ogden and we are grateful to be part of such an emotional and worthy event.”
In memory of Officer Lyday, a tree was planted last Fall in the parking lot of Fresh Market East Ogden. “Nate was near and dear to our hearts,” continued the Store Director, “and I’m grateful to have a permanent place to remember him.”
