We hope to reschedule if at all possible, and will keep you apprised as we have more information.

Thank you for your support. Please stay warm, safe and dry during the storm!

2016 K9 Golf Tournament: June 6th

Salem PD k9 BadgeThis year’s fourth annual K9 Golf Tournament will be held on June 6th, at the Olde Salem Greens, 775 Wilson Street.

In 2012, the Police department’s desire and recognized need for a K9 unit lead organizations, residents and businesses to tackle a fund-raising effort. Over $70,000 was secured for the program. Far surpassing expectations, that money allowed the Salem Police Department to purchase and train three units. This year, for the first time, the Salem Fire Department will be also participating and supporting this annual event.

In the years since its creation, Salem’s K9 program has become a regional asset, lending support to other area communities lacking the specialized skills these units provide: search, rescue, drug enforcement, and incendiary detection.

As criminal methods change over time, law enforcement techniques develop to meet new community protection and crime-fighting challenges. To keep current, K9 units require continual training. Each year the K9 Golf Tournament raises funds for equipment, food and training enhancements. T-shirt and sweatshirt sales each summer and Haunted Happenings season secures additional monies needed to maintain, train and supply our units.

Even if you don’t golf, you can support our K9s by sponsoring other players, donating prizes, and purchasing t-shirts and event tickets – whether or not you attend.

For more information about this event, email RoseMary O’Connor (rosemary444@verizon.net) or Pat Foley (pfoley@nebhealth.org).

MPNA Spring Planting

The Mack Neighborhood Neighborhood Association (MPNA) anticipates this year’s spring planting to happen in May — date to be determined, weather permitting.

Planting typically takes place on a weekend morning, when volunteers gather at the intersection of Mason, Grove and Harmony Grove Road armed with gloves, shovels and rakes. It’s great exercise and a fun way to meet your neighbors.

This year we’ll be planting in the new green space created at the intersection, as our island was eliminated during last year’s reconfiguration. This means we’ll also be setting up new beds.

We could really use your help!

In late April and early May we’ll be looking for volunteers and donations of perennials, landscaping cloth, soil and mulch.

If you’d like to donate materials or are interested in volunteering, send us an email at mackparkorg@gmail.com.
