MERRIMACK – The Merrimack Crimeline recently concluded an active year.

The Crimeline awards two $1,000 scholarships yearly to Merrimack High School seniors. This year, the scholarships were awarded to Madison Scott, daughter of Timothy and Pylisity Scott, and Casandra Smith, daughter of Marion and Fred Smith.

The Crimeline recognized one resident with a payout that was made for information on a robbery called into the Crimeline hotline.

To make an anonymous tip, call the Crimeline at 424-2424. There is no caller ID feature on this number, so anonymity is assured.

Each caller is given a code, and if the tip leads to an arrest, rewards of up to $1,000 are paid in cash to ensure anonymity.

Anonymous tips also may be submitted at www.
merrimackcrimeline.org.

Meetings of the Crimeline are suspended for the summer and will resume in September. Its main fundraiser will be a tournament on Wednesday, Sept. 10, at Souhegan Woods Golf Club in Amherst.

Throughout the year, members participated at the police open house in May; the Citizens Academy, at which they presented T-shirts to the graduates; and hosted a pizza party at one of the academy’s meetings.

The Crimeline has adopted Daniel Webster Highway, and members pick up trash yearly from Bedford Road to Greeley Street.

In April, the Crimeline sponsored the sixth annual magic show performed the Granite State Conjurors, which gave an outstanding performance.

A check for $1,354.04 was presented to the Merrimack Police Department at the open house to support the K-9 program and Gunny. Total money raised from the six years is $9,671.48.

Plans for next year’s magic show are already underway, the date is April 18.
