GREETINGS

Mayor Duch and Chief Dooling, titular heads and guiding officers of Trentonís far-flung police system, have expressed their enthusiastic approval of the spirit and diligence of the rank and file that has made possible tonightís production.

 
Honorable

ANDREW J. DUCH

Mayor
and
Director of Public Safety

 

           My years of close contact with the Police Department have enabled me to observe the fine spirit exemplified in the annual production of the Patrolmenís Benevolent Associationís show.
           The splendid co-operation accorded this annual event in previous years clearly

demonstrates the confidence of the people by their generous support.
           I am very happy for the opportunity to publicly endorse and recommend such a worthwhile event, which affords fine entertainment to the people and is a great booster of morale for the members of the Department.

Honorable

WILLIAM A. DOOLING

Chief
of the
Trenton Police Department

 
 

           The official greetings and welcome of the Trenton Police Department is extended to the patrons of the Police Show, with the wish that you will enjoy the wholesome entertainment displayed in ďAnything May Happen.Ē

     The men of the Department have worked,

unselfishly in preparation of this show, the sale of seats has been gratifying, and its fine reception is symbolic of the feeling of good will which exists between Trentonís citizens and the uniformed defenders of their interests and property. This exemplifies that fine spirit of harmony necessary in community life.

They have answered the call
Ready their lives to give.
