Community Reception!

Community Reception for new Police Chief and CRESS Director 

Get to know Amherst’s new leadership for Public Safety and Community Response on Saturday, June 30 from 2:30 – 4:30 PM at the Mill River Recreation Area.

The League of Women Voters is hosting an informal Community Reception, and everyone is welcome to greet Police Chief Gabriel Ting and CRESS Director Camille Theriaque. Chief Ting and Director Theriaque will share their initial goals and aspirations for the coming year, and they would like to meet and hear from their Amherst neighbors.

Bring the family to enjoy music, snacks, and the park’s recreation opportunities.

The reception is open to the public, free of charge, sponsored by the Amherst League of Women Voters.
