Everyone at Woodlawn is proud to work beside South Whitehall Township Police Department to keep our residents and guests safe throughout the year!
South Whitehall Township Police Department As we celebrate National Police Week and Peace Officers Memorial Day on May 15th, I want to personally thank all the officers of the South Whitehall Township Police Department for their hard work and dedication to the South Whitehall Township Community. This year has been a challenging one, to say the least. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought new challenges never imagined before, yet the Officer of the South Whitehall Township Police Department and officers across the country have stepped up to the challenge day in and day out to serve our communities. They should be applauded for serving our communities while putting their own fears and needs aside to serve those who need help during this unprecedented time.
My heartfelt thanks and appreciation go out to all the police officers across the country. I have never been more proud to be a part of this noble profession of Law Enforcement and to serve next to some of the greatest people in the world. Thank you again for your service and stay safe and healthy.
Looking for a break from the indoor isolation? Retired Woodlawn Fire Chief Russ Held was featured this weekend on WNEP's Pennsylvania Outdoor Life for his well-known expertise and insight into shad fishing on the Delaware River. The annual shad run has long been a passion of his, along with other fishing tours in Northern New York, and Woodlawn is very proud of his success and recognition. Unfortunately, the current health crisis has canceled this year’s shad competition and has shut down fishing tours altogether for the foreseeable future. Russ was a Woodlawn member and officer for many years, retiring in 2017 as perhaps one of the most respected chiefs in the Lehigh Valley to spend more time on the water and running his business, Rusty Balls Tackle and Guide Service.
