Last month, the week of September 11th through September 17th was designated by the communities of The Chagrin Valley as “Salute Our First Responders Week”. I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the men and women of the police department to thank Dave and Mary Gromelski of Sara’s Place who provided a take-out dinner for our officers in appreciation of our service to the community. We are truly appreciative and grateful for all the support we have received and continue to receive from all of you.
Until next month – Proud to serve…Sworn to Protect
Yours in Service,
