On Tuesday, the Methuen Police Department held their semi-annual 45's card tournament at the Methuen Senior Center.
The "Us Vs. Them" 45’s tournament Seniors vs. the Methuen Police Department was initiated to open communication between our senior residents and our police.
Sometimes with seniors, calling 911 can be a scary or intimidating process. To alleviate fear, we decided to come together and play a game that they love and would open the doors of communication.
Now when a senior calls for assistance they know a true friend is coming to their aide.
During the course of the game, laughter is shared, friendships are made. Tuesday's tournament had over 24 teams participate in the event!!
