Vernon Township resident A.J. Commaroto created wooden flag for the Vernon Township Police Dept as part of the #makersneverforget challenge.

The challenge was for one woodworker per state to make a handmade wooden flag to a first responder of their choice, and Commaroto's fiance, Kimberly Rudy presented the completed flag to the Vernon Township Police Dept. on Oct. 28.

Commaroto said he does woodworking as a hobby and is looking at the possibility of starting a small business. He said he didn't want to make a flag that would lay flat, but wanted to make the flag look as though it was blowing in the wind.

We are truly appreciative of the support we receive from our community," the department said in a statement on its Facebook page. "It is being proudly displayed in the lobby of Vernon Township Police Headquarters."
