From the Desk of the Chief of Police:

The Chincoteague Police Department would like to say THANK YOU! to the many individuals, organizations, carvers, artists, and business that gave so much to our Poker Run and auction this year.  These supporters going far above and beyond what was expected really made this year’s effort successful.  Without the officers, dispatchers, and many, many other volunteers, our events would not be possible.  So, again, THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH!
