Our guest speaker today was Lieutenant Dale Waltz of Canton Public Safety.
President John Kowalski rang us in on time today after our board meeting, and the following are a few announcements:
  • Sat., April 14th at 8:00am-12:00pm is District Assembly.  Check the link for details and let John or Sue know if you want to go. Deadline to register is April 6th.  We will register as a Club and not individually.
  • Sat., March 10th is our Youth Exchange Luncheon and Tour at the Cherry Hill Schoolhouse and Bartlett-Travis House.
  • Members are reminded that the Area 5 Ghana school project is still accepting donation items.
  • A reminder that the club grant application is due May 30th.  This is targeting to support trees, hydration units, benches, and a Little Free Library in Griffin Park (similar to Flodin's).
Lt. Dale Waltz was our guest speaker today from Canton Public Safety.  He first gave the club a bit of his background and training when he started with the force here in 1996.  He then gave the club a brief history of several of the programs that have been serving the Township that he has been involved with including the Hate Crime Unit, the "Not in our Town" organization, parallel programs for continued education with the Public Library, and integrated leadership programs. 
This also included, the "Gold Star Initiative", National Night Out, peace rallies, get to know your neighbor, and even more background information on the coalitions of Canton's diverse communities that are coming together as active peace initiatives across the Township today.  We thanked him for speaking to us and appreciate all the Canton Public Safety Officers' service to our community of Canton.  Check out their website at:
It was an evening meeting so we ordered from the menu at Antonio's today.
