Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

January 17th is a holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Dr. King lived his life serving others – following his example, millions of Americans serve their communities on Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service by volunteering at schools, at a local shelter, or lending a hand to help neighbors.

Volunteering for MLK Day of Service is a great way to engage with your community while honoring the legacy of Dr. King. Whether you plan on cleaning up a public space, mentoring a young person, or assisting those who are food insecure, what you do makes a world of difference.

MLK Day of Service is intended to empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, create solutions to social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a “Beloved Community.” To learn more on how you can serve your community click here.

SCA – Bob Perkaus Memorial 5K & Halloween Update

The Sauganash Community Association has made the difficult decision to suspend the 2021 Bob Perkaus Memorial 5K Race in consideration of the safety of our participants, volunteers and onlookers. Instead, to honor this community fall tradition, we are asking that our Sauganash residents submit pictures and statements about how they are staying fit and having family fun during the pandemic. Your submissions with creative captions can be sent to contact@sauganash.org for inclusion on our community SCA website. We look forward to gathering together next fall (2022) for the return of the SCA Bob Perkaus Memorial 5K Race.

Halloween is the next holiday for which we will be delivering ribbons to decorated Sauganash homes. Special “Sauganash Surprise” gift bags will be awarded in three categories: “most spooktacular”, “most ghastly, ghostly, ghoulish”, and “most illuminated/animated”. The SCA Halloween Team is looking forward to seeing our Sauganash celebration of this Fall/Halloween season!

Happy Independence Day

Check out the video from the FLAG RAISING CEREMONY + pics from the parade HERE. Happy Independence Day!

Be Kind, Courteous and Respectful

 Respect your neighbors by practicing fireworks courtesy, the noise and lights of fireworks can often have a frightening effect on our veterans, children and animals. Please keep your at-home fireworks to a minimum (preferably none). Support you local BOOM by watching fireworks at a safe and centralized location near you!
