   The 100 Club of Matagorda County held its 42nd annual law enforcement awards dinner to recognize local law enforcement personnel and to treat them to a free dinner Friday, Aug. 23.  
   Law enforcement and other special awards were presented to officers of various county and state agencies serving Matagorda County.  
   “We are aware of the risks of what you do for us,” said 100 Club President Steven Reis.  
   “We want to show our appreciation for the job that you do for us and for putting yourselves between us and the threats we face.   
   “You all are running into these stressful and sometimes hazardous situations while the rest of us are running out and that’s commendable.”  
   Reis also explained the history of the 100 Club and why it was formed.  
   “The purpose of this organization was to provide a little bit of comfort for those officers that protect and serve in our community as law enforcement by letting them know that if anything should happen to them in the line of duty that there is a group of citizens that would help try to take care of their families,” he said.
