Newman Police K9 Crab Feed
Diners were able to eat their fill of crab and then some at the annual Newman Police K9 Association.

The Newman Police K9 Association was established in 2008 as a means to fund the Newman Police K9 Unit. The Association is solely responsible for the purchase of the K9s, their training, and equipment and provides full medical coverage and purchases food for the retired K9s.

The annual crab feed dinner in March is the primary fundraiser for the association and brings in a big crowd eager to eat some crab and help the K9 unit.
