Rotary Club learns about Police Unity Bike Tour
Keith Fane and his daughter Jessica presented a program on the Police Unity Bike Tour during the Aug. 22 meeting of the Rotary Club of Ocean City-Upper Township at Uncle Bill’s Pancakes, 21st St. and Asbury Ave., Ocean City. Also pictured is Jim Chadwick, Rotary President. Each of our speakers received a special certificate documenting that 200 more children will be immunized in their name, as the club and Rotary International continues the commitment to eradicate polio from Planet Earth.
The Police Unity Bike Tour is a fundraiser by law enforcement officers to raise money for families of officers killed in the line of duty and also supports the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C. For more information on the Police Unity Bike Tour see policeunitytour.com and nleomf.org/memorial.
