On Saturday April 13, Elizabeth Township celebrated the 4th birthday of K-9 officer Eli. His owner, Officer Novacek, adopted him when he was only 12 months old. Novacek since then has spent tireless hours training him using German and Dutch commands as well as hand signals.

Officer Eli, enjoys his ice cream cake donated by Frosty Cone.

The event provided a hot dog and french fry lunch, a variety of beverages, cupcakes, and ice cream sandwiches. In addition to lunch, kids of all ages could participate in any of the multiple activities sponsored by the township including face painting, crafts, coloring pages with birthday greetings to Elli printed on them, and a bean bag toss.

Eli and Novacek demonstrated some enforcement tactics used in the field and stopped to take pictures with anyone who asked. To help fund the police department T-shirts and decals were sold and a Chinese auction was held. Towards the end of the party, winners of the auction were presented with the prizes and Officer Eli was presented with an ice cream cake generously donated by local ice cream parlor, Frosty Cone. He even had gifts to open from his guests.
