Albion Plans Neighborhood Watch
City-Wide Picnic August 17, 2002

The Albion Neighborhood Watch Picnic has been scheduled for Satuday, Aug. 17. Come at noon, but plan to start eating around 12:30 p.m. This annual event will be held at the Victory Park pavilion in Albion.

Entertainment will include numerous acts, including a live band, (above) Bittersweet, (Gary Watkins), dancers from Grace Temple, and much more.

Another feature of the event will be the caped crime fighter Captain Jackson with his cohorts Queen of Hearts and Crime Fighter Girl. Chief of Police L.J. McCowen and Mayor Bill Wheaton will be on duty as "chefs." Thanks to the generosity of local businesses, hot dogs and hamburgers will be provided, as well as beverages. However, guests are asked to bring their own table service and a dish to pass.

There will be a raffle, of prizes donated by local merchants. For more information or to support the event, call Terry Sweeter at 517-629-9018 or Lt. Gerald McQueen of the Albion Public Safety at 629-3934.
