Fire Station Baskets / Toys for Cops
On Saturday, December14, you’ll have two opportunities to boost your holiday spirit.

This year’s National Night Out at Tietze Park will be Tuesday, October 1 from 5:30-8:00pm.
National Night Out is designed to strengthen community relationship between residents and public service organizations such as police, city departments and charitable organizations that serve the community. This year’s event is hosted by three neighborhood associations – Lower Greenville, Lakewood Heights, and Lowest Greenville West and The Friends of Tietze Park Foundation.
On hand will be police officers to talk to about crime concerns. In addition, we will have exhibits from quality-of-life and charitable organizations. As usual we will have the face painters, hotdogs, musical entertainment, and a bounce house.
This is a great opportunity to have some fun, meet some neighbors, and learn a little something about health and safety. Look for the manila flyer on your doorstep. The event will take the place of our regularly scheduled November LGNA meeting. Be sure to stop by and say hello!

The only residential burglary this month was of Continue reading
