The Lawrence Park Holiday/Relief Committee Needs You!
The committee needs a secretary; after 27 years, ours is retiring. The committee meets two times per year, and helps to run the annual Halloween Parade and Christmas tree activities. It’s a fun committee, and does a great job serving the community. If you are willing to help the committee, please contact the Township Office at 899-2305.
