MERCER COUNTY, May 25 — The Annual 200 Club of Mercer County Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, June 9th, at 11:30am at the Mercer Oaks Golf Course Clubhouse in West Windsor. It will feature New Jersey’s first Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno as Guest Speaker. The Lt. Governor previously served as the 75th Sheriff of Monmouth County, and the county’s first woman sheriff.
The 200 Club will also present a Valor Award to State Trooper Steven Foster for his actions at the scene of an accident in Hamilton Township. The Valor Award is presented to an individual who has committed an act of bravery, beyond the call of duty, and imminent personal risk to his own life and safety, and is the highest award given by a 200 Club. A 200 Club Valor pin is the only pin allowed to be worn on the uniform of a New Jersey State Police officer outside of his own awards.
“We are excited to welcome Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno to this year’s luncheon,” states Cathy Frank-White, President of the 200 Club of Mercer County. “I believe there is a ground swell of support for all the dedicated law enforcement, fire and rescue organizations in Mercer County. These men and women play an integral role for the security and safety in our community,” Frank-White continues.
The 200 Club of Mercer County is one of several hundred associations nationwide dedicated to providing financial assistance to the families of our public safety and rescue personnel who are killed in the line of duty. This includes the police officers (state, county, and municipal), correction officers, fire fighters, and rescue squad technicians of Mercer County.
Established in 1979, The 200 Club of Mercer County has provided funds to a multitude
of families. Becoming a member of the 200 Club of Mercer County will support an honorable cause at a time when the families of these dedicated and brave individuals need it most.
