TABERNACLE TOWNSHIP HONORS TWO OF THEIR PUBLIC WORKS EMPLOYEES
 
On April 14, 2008 at the Tabernacle Township Workshop Meeting, Mayor Kimberly Brown issued two Proclomations for Years of Service to two Township Employees of the Public Works Department.  Both employees have demonstrated due diligence in the performance of their duties and well deserve to be recognized for their efforts.

The Township is proud to have these employees on staff serving the residents of our community.  If you see them around town be sure to congratulate them on jobs well done!

Charles "Charlie" Poinsett was recognized for his 30 years of service to the Township.
 
Charlie retired from service to the Township on December 31, 2011 and was presented with a plaque recognizing his many years of service to the Tabernacle community.
