Mayor's Office

The month of September promises to be an exciting time in Maumelle with numerous citywide events. You may want to take advantage of Maumelle’s abundant amenities – biking or hiking on our walking paths, having a picnic in the park, fishing in one of the lakes, or playing a round of golf at one of our golf courses. The main point is that you experience one of the many outdoor activities available in Maumelle.

The Maumelle Area Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a citywide festival on September 8, 2018, called “Bash on the Boulevard.” This is the third year for the event; a large crowd attended last year. Come out, spend some time with your friends and neighbors, and enjoy the food, music, and entertainment. There will be many businesses supporting this event, and you will have a chance to meet them, while enjoying the festivities. This year’s Bash will include a car show and an art gallery.

The annual Maumelle Friends of the Animals (MFOA) Puppy Pool Pawty is Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the Dowel Naylor Aquatics Center. Hours of the event are 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. All proceeds benefit MFOA, a 501(c) 3 non-profit, which provides support to Maumelle Animal Services and the pets of the Maumelle community. Come have some fun in the sun!

There will be a “Fall Fishing Event” for seniors on September 21 at Lake Valencia from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. For more information, contact the Maumelle Senior Services Department at 501-851-4344.

The purpose of this monthly newsletter is to keep you informed about events in Maumelle, both socially and within city government. Please let me know if you have questions or if there is anything else that you would like to have included in this newsletter. I look forward to seeing you at city meetings and hearing what you have to say.
