Law enforcement personnel from Perrysburg Township and the City of Perrysburg will be guests of honor at the Northern Wood County Republican Club Annual Picnic on Monday, August 19 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.at the Rivercrest Park Shelter on Eckel Junction Road in Perrysburg. There is no fee and you do not have to be a member to attend.
Elected officials and candidates running for office will grill hotdogs and hamburgers and serve attendees. "We hope the public will join us in paying tribute to these men and women who exhibited exceptional bravery and heroism while under fire during a hostage situation in 2018", said Joe Schaller, Perrysburg Township Trustee.
Earlier this year during National Police Week in Washington D.C., these law enforcement personnel represented Ohio and received the "Top Cops" Awards for actions above and beyond the call of duty. Only one case is selected from each state to receive the award of Honorable Mention.
This picnic is a great time to show our appreciation to those who protect us every day and to get to know your elected officials and candidates running for office. Contact Maria Ermie, Chairperson, NWCRC 419-704-8824 with questions.
