New Officials Come Out For Meet ‘N’ Greet

Elkton Neighborhood Watch To Hold Open House Tuesday

Posted: January 17, 2014

The Elkton Neighborhood Watch is inviting residents to come out to get to know the town’s new manager and police chief and other officials.

In conjunction with the Elkton Police Department, the volunteer group will hold a reception at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Junior Order Building in Blue Ridge Park next to Shen Elk Plaza, according to a news release.

Newly appointed Town Manager Kevin Whitfield, the former police chief, and Chief Aaron Hammer will be in attendance, the release says.

Council appointed both men to their new roles last month. Whitfield replaced Kevin Fauber, who stepped down in September under pressure from council.

Hammer was a sergeant in the department before being promoted.

Also invited to Tuesday’s reception are Mayor Roy “Gene” Davis and all other members of the Elkton Town Council.

“This is a ‘get acquainted’ session for the public to learn about [neighborhood watch] activities in support of law enforcement, and to meet the town’s mayor, police chief, town manager and council,” Haze Crider, coordinator of the volunteer group, said in the release.

Light refreshments will be served.
