West Point Police Department Presents The American Cancer Society with a Donation
At the recent West Point Town Council meeting, Chief of Police Bobby Mawyer presented Lisa Goodall of the American Cancer Society a check for $2115 to be utilized for breast cancer awareness and research. These funds were collected through the sales of the patch developed especially for the West Point Police Department through a grant made possible by the Elis Olsson Memorial Foundation with the support of members of the Mattaponi Crime Solvers. Also pictured with Chief Mawyer and Ms. Goodall are American Cancer Society volunteers Ms. Joyce Dykes and Ms. Ann Gainer. The West Point Police Department thanks all who supported this endeavor. Patches are still available through the police department and through both C&F branches in West Point for $10 each.
