Celebrate the fifth annual Public Safety Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Moose Lodge, 50 Grove St. in Salem.

Visit with McGruff, the Crime Dog from Salem's K-9 Unit; step inside the smoke house to learn about fire safety; explore public safety vehicles; and learn about safety for senior citizens, food and health safety, and the city of Salem's automated calling system. Face painting, coloring and crafts will be available for children. At 1 p.m., Tommy the Moose will present stuffed animals to law enforcement for distribution to children who have experienced traumatic events. Also, The Masons of Massachusetts, in partnership with the Massachusetts Crime Prevention Officers Association and the Massachusetts Dental Association, will donate MYCHIP resources, which provide parents with fingerprints, toothprints, a cheek swab, and a videotape of their child, all of which can be used by law enforcement authorities to help identify a lost or missing child. The event will take place rain or shine.

Local veterans and their families are invited to join Operation Troop Support members at Green Meadows Farm for Operation Troop Support Day from noon to 3 p.m. Festivities include hay rides, tours of the farm fields, which are named for fallen heroes, and live music by the New Liberty Dixieland Band.
