November Meeting at WTPD

On behalf of the members of post “1776” we want to thank the Washington Twp Police Department for hosting our monthly Post meeting at the police headquarters.

We appreciated the coffee, bagels and donuts that your staff provided.  I  know that you all are busy, but we were happy that several of your force, including yourself took the time to come into the conference room to greet us and thank us for our service on this Veterans Day.
