On Wednesday, June 13, 2018, eight (8) officers from the Manheim Township Police Department joined over twenty (20) other area law enforcement officers to participate in the 21st annual Special Olympics fundraiser at Funck's Restaurant in Leola, PA.  Officers volunteered their time from 5:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. waiting on tables to earn tips which were later donated to that organization.  A raffle was also held to generate funds.  MTPD's Officer Michael Tropp coordinated the participation of Manheim Township Police Officers with other officers from Lancaster City, Millersville University, West Lampeter Township, Lititz Borough, Northwest Regional, East Lampeter, and the Pennsylvania State Police.  A total of $5,000.00 was raised which will be used to send Lancaster County Special Olympians to the Special Olympics in State College, PA this coming August.  The Manheim Township Police Department was proud to participate in this event and we look forward to next year!
