Mayflower High School Service Club presents Mayor with microchip scanner

Mayflower High School Service Club presents Mayor with microchip scanner

The newly-formed Mayflower Animal Freaks, a school service club, elected officers just in time to present mayor Randy Holland with a state-of-the art microchip scanner at the last city council meeting of the year, which is Tuesday night.

The scanner with a retail value of over $350, will be logged in as city property and then go to the animal control department to help reunite lost pets with their owners. Mayflower doesn’t have a humane society, and the animal control officer position is part time. There was a great need, and the students formed the club to be of service to their community.
