A kickball fundraiser will take place on Saturday September 7, 2019, to help raise funds for the Emmett Township Department of Public Safety for a new K-9 officer and all the supplies, training, and other necessary needs that would be required to keep one.

Officer Rich Mackey, of the Emmett Township Department of Public Safety, recently spoke with an employee at a local business to request a donation to help fund their department for a new K-9 officer. Lori Sue Martin said that that is when she realized it would mean more money than what most small businesses could contribute. And the idea for the fundraiser was born.
