The Halifax TRIAD met on Tuesday, June 7, at the Halifax Police Station. TRIAD is a partnership between local and regional groups to help inform and educate senior citizens. The guest speaker for June was Plymouth County Sheriff Joseph McDonald, Jr.
Sheriff McDonald outlined the responsibilities of the sheriff’s department and reviewed the role of sheriff throughout history. The office of sheriff in Plymouth County dates back to 1692 and it was an appointed position until 1856. Sheriff McDonald is the thirtieth Sheriff for Plymouth County, an office he has held since 2005.
A former history teacher, McDonald also shared some interesting history stories and took questions from the audience. Informational pamphlets and fliers were also available to participants.
Halifax TRIAD meetings take place the first Tuesday of the month at 10 a.m. When meetings resume after a summer hiatus they will take place in the Great Room of the Halifax Town Hall. The next TRIAD meeting is scheduled for October 4, 2022.
