Mordecai Citizens Advisory Council - The KEY to Strong Community!  


Please join us this summer!

  • Sunday, June 30: 37th Annual Mordecai CAC Picnic at Mordecai Historic Park 
    It’s time to meet your neighbors at the 2019 Mordecai Community Picnic! Bring a blanket, lawn chairs, your favorite salad or side dish and relax during the 4:30-5:30 p.m. social hour. We'll enjoy live music by Oakwood resident Ben Youngblood under the shady trees before digging into some fried chicken and tasty potluck dishes.
    This is an alcohol-free, family friendly event. We’ll have the neighborhood play wagons there with plenty of fun activities for the kids! In case of inclement weather, the event will be held at Temple Baptist Church.
    For more information, or to volunteer, please contact Picnic Chairperson Merrilee Jacobson at
  • July 4: Neighborhood 4th of July Parade 
    The fun family parade is hosted by the Pilot Mill neighborhood, and will begin at 10:30am at the intersection of Harp and Cedar streets. We will march down Harp Street and back up Blount Street to Mordecai Mini Park.
    Then we will enjoy time at the park for festive snacks and play time. There will be snow cones, popcorn and cotton candy machines!
  • August 6: National Night Out/Ice Cream Social, Halifax Community Center. Don’t miss this community event featuring ice cream, games, and snacks. Meet neighbors and visit with our community police officers.
