Senior Center Event

Senior Center Members – Chief Patrick Gurcsik and I would like to invite you to come join Washington Township Council members and Washington Township police officers, as we celebrate a “Christmas in July” themed luncheon. This fun fill event will include a complimentary BBQ lunch which will be cooked and served by our officers. A huge thank you to the Chiango Family and Egizi Funeral home for sponsoring the BBQ food and entertainment, by The John Monforto Variety Show. Thank you to Duffields for donating salads and condiments and Aversa’s Bakery for the yummy desserts. Members will receive free raffle tickets for the prizes and there will be a door prize from myself. We will be handing out party favors and ice cream from the Freeze Pop Washington Township Police Department (WTPD) ice cream truck. Let’s not forget a guest appearance by Santa.
