Yesterday, Chief Solomon thanked Daniel Habib for his work on building our new glass case. This case was specially built to house a vintage department uniform in our Police Museum. Daniel is a carpenter and retired teacher from the Greater Lawrence Vocational School and generously volunteered his time to build the glass case.
Officer Aaron Little was a student of Daniel's and the two connected to work on this project. Chief Solomon had priced out similar cases and the cost was between $2,500 and $3,000. The department purchased the materials and Daniel spent approximately 40 hours of his own time to design and build the new glass case.
The wall plaque presented to Daniel reads as follows:
"In recognition and with great appreciation for your time and efforts for constructing an outstanding mannequin showcase display for our department's historical memorabilia museum. Your carpentry skills are supurb."
On behalf of Chief Solomon and the men and women of the Methuen Police Department, thank you Daniel!
