Open Water Swim Sponsor

Wednesday, May 4th, the Senior division kicked off the Open Water Wednesday series at beautiful Latta Plantation. Though it was a cool day, sunshine and hard exercise kept the swimmers warm! The swimmers were excited to participate in the first open water swim since last summer. As the coaches explained to the Senior swimmers, Open Water Wednesdays will provide a great chance for kids to get aerobic training in a  new environment. Open water provides an opportunity for swimmers to work on distance per stroke, rhythm, stroke balance, and continuous kicks without the interruption of turns. For those who want to pursue open water racing, this is a great chance to get some practice.

SwimMAC and Lake Norman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram are excited for the upcoming open water season. Congratulations to the Senior Division for a great start to the summer!

Lake Norman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Donates a "Durango-Full" of Toys to Barium Springs

If you were at Northlake Mall anytime from Black Friday through December 9th, you might have seen a 2012 Dodge Durango stuffed with toys in the Macy's Court. Lake Norman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram  bought enough toys to fill the Durango and shoppers were invited to "Guess How Many Toys" were inside. The winner of the contest will receive a $250 Northlake Mall Gift card but the real winners will be the kids at the Barium Springs Home for Children, where all the toys were delivered on December 15th.

The toys will be wrapped and delivered to the children that Barium Springs serves, which include 40 on campus and 400 in the local community. Unfortunately, Barium Springs has been affected by the economy, much like other local businesses and non-profit organizations. The staff at Lake Norman Chrysler had a great time selecting the toys and imagining the happy faces of all the kids when they open them. If you'd like more information about Barium Springs, you can visit their website at: www.bariumsprings.org

Thank you to all the volunteers and participants in our Dog Wash Fundraiser!

Dogs of all shapes and sizes...Dachshunds to Great Danes...came out to join the fun at the first Lake Norman Chrysler Dog Wash Fundraiser! The kitties came out and joined the fun....away from the water, of course, but available for adoption. There was plenty of laughs, a few woofs, and a good soaking for most of the volunteers, which was appreciated in the 90-degree-plus heat! The humans were treated to a free spinal screening by Ballas Chiropractic, who donates back to Friends for Life for every new client they receive that presents a special coupon from the rescue group. Free lunch was provided to volunteers and participants to keep everyone's energy up and treats were available for everyone's four-legged friends.
 
All proceeds benefited Friends for Life LKN and Catering to Cats and Dogs. Funds will help with care and maintenance of foster animals, low cost spay neuter, and any necessary medical care. Thank you to all our volunteers and for all our canine, feline and human friends that came out to participate!

Lake Norman Chrysler Jeep Dodge joins the race to save animals with the Greg Biffle Foundation!

Local business owners will be racing to save local animals against NASCAR driver Greg Biffle We invite everyone to come out and cheer for Jack Salzman, owner of Lake Norman Chrysler Jeep Dodge, as he takes Greg on in a race challenge! All proceeds will benefit the Cornelius Animal Shelter. The race will be located at the Aquesta Bank Headquarters in Cornelius.
 
After beginning as a temporary facility made up of a few cages and dog runs covered by tarps and sheltered by straw bales, the Cornelius Animal Shelter has recently opened as a new 3,265-square-foot facility. The new shelter offers a safe, climate-controlled environment for not only the animals but also the volunteers. Today, the shelter and it's 100-plus regular volunteers maintain a euthanasia rate of about 7 percent, while similar public shelters throughout North Carolina maintain a 70-plus percent euthanasia rate. For the majority of 2009, before the new facility opened the shelter averaged about 21 adoptions a month. Now with an extended volunteer force, expanded hours and increased awareness and publicity, the shelter is averaging about 46 adoptions per month. A considerable amount of hard work and monetary/in-kind donations have created the foundation for a truly successful public shelter. The public has, overall, been receptive and supportive, but the job has just begun. The Cornelius Animal Shelter offers opportunities to help in a number of ways.
