Club Briefs: Merrimack Crimeline finishes successful year
MERRIMACK — Merrimack Crimeline members say the group has wrapped up a successful year.
Crimeline annually awards two $1,000 scholarships to Merrimack High School seniors. This year, the scholarships were awarded to Madison Scott, daughter of Timothy and Pylisity Scott, and Casandra Smith, daughter of Marion and Fred Smith.
Crimeline meetings are suspended for the summer and will resume at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 3, at the Merrimack Police Station.
During the year, Crimeline sponsored the sixth annual magic show performed by the Granite State Conjurors in April; members participated in the Merrimack Police Department open house in May and at the Citizens Police Academy, during which they presented T-shirts to the graduates and hosted a pizza party at one of the academy’s meetings; and they “adopted” Daniel Webster Highway and will be picking up trash yearly from Bedford Road to Greeley Street.
Plans for next year’s magic show are underway, with the date set for April 18.
