Saturday, Sept. 28

Support the boys' soccer program at Marblehead High School by having your car washed. The team's car wash and canning fundraiser will take place from 9 a.m. to noon in the high school's circular drive at 2 Humphrey St. A $20 donation is suggested, but donations of any amount will be accepted.

Celebrate the fifth annual Public Safety Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Moose Lodge, 50 Grove St. in Salem. Learn about bike safety and travel through an obstacle course (free helmets will be available on a first-come first-serve basis). 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. Admission is free, and refreshments will be available for purchase. The Farm is located at 656 Asbury St. in South Hamilton. For more information, call 978-468-3769.
