Fellow residents and business owners of Belmont:
In the spirit of great changes being made in the look of our town, my daughter and I have to decided to take the reins and "Ditch the Gray".
Have you ever noticed the traditional uniform for police is dark blue, and our town has grey. The grey is not attractive looking and is more expensive and harder to find these days.
As you may know, the town has purchased new police cruisers and have gone back to the traditional colors which has been highly praised. As you all know, we have a new Police Chief Mark Lewandowski, who has been in this town a very long time and seen a lot of change. This change has sparked a lot of enthusiasm in the department. He took on his new role without having any part in the budget process because it was already done. Our Belmont Police Department is in great support of going back to the traditional look for their department. New uniforms are not in this year's budget for them so we have decided to help out. Alicia and I have set a goal to raise the funds for them to "Ditch the Gray".
With this being said we are asking you for a donation in support of this initiative. Any donation is accepted and nothing is too small. We want to thank you so much in advance and appreciate your patronage. Checks need to be written out to the Town of Belmont, Attn: Ditch the Gray Campaign, P.O. Box 310, Belmont, NH 03220 and will be put in a special account specifically for this use. If you have a question for us. please don't hesitate to give us a call at our office at 527-1140.
Ruth P. Mooney & Alicia M. Segalini
