• Citywide garage sales are this Saturday in Maxwell. Sale listings will be at City Hall and Casey’s. Most sales start at 8 a.m. and will go until around 2 p.m.

• Our Family Dog Park held a dedication ceremony this past Sunday and there were lots of happy tails running around and enjoying the new area. It was dedicated in memory of Jacob Myers, who passed away in 2015; Jacob and his wife Sarah started the veterinary office in town, Our Family Vet Clinic.

When a group had the idea to start a dog park, the first thoughts were of naming it in some way to honor Jake, and his wife Sarah and their children were very happy about the new project.

It took some time to fundraise and get a location finalized, and today the park was full of dogs running around and enjoying the space.

The dog park still needs to have water run to the location and they would like to have a security light installed, so more improvements will be coming when they get the rest of the funds.

If you would like to make a donation to the dog park, please take any funds to Maxwell City Hall; they also have flyers for the dog park rules, too.
