[September 21, 2012]  The city of Lincoln and the From the Group Up group will host a community night Thursday at Melrose Park, at Adams and 13th streets in Lincoln.

The From the Ground Up group will plant flower beds in the park in the afternoon, beginning at 3:30. The tulips for these beds have been donated by Ward 1 Alderwomen Melody Anderson and Stacy Bacon.

At 5:30, Lincoln D.A.R.E. will start serving grilled hot dogs, chips and soda, all free of charge.

Everyone is invited to come out and visit with Mayor Keith Snyder and Anderson during the evening.

In addition the Lincoln Fire Department and Police Department will have a fire truck and squad car for kids and adults to inspect firsthand. There are also plans for the street department to bring out one of their big dump trucks.

Parents are invited to bring their cameras for a shot of their children as future firefighters, policemen or superintendent of Lincoln streets and alleys. Bring lawn chairs and blankets and prepare to stay awhile, relaxing and visiting with friends and neighbors.
