Garfield Ridge Neighborhood Watch Plans "Awareness" Event for June 2

Members of the Garfield Ridge Neighborhood Watch (GRNW) are asking everyone in the community to "save the date" and make plans to attend a "neighborhood awareness" event set for 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Saturday, June 2 at the northeast corner of Archer and Nashville.

"Awareness leads to action; and action leads to a better and safer Garfield Ridge for everyone," stated GRNW President Al Cacciottolo. "We plan to have something for everyone at this event---from young children to senior citizens and everyone in between---so please come on out and join us."

The event will be held on the parking lots of the Archer Heights Credit Union and Lindy's Chili.

A number of law enforcement agencies and local businesses will have tables set up to offer useful services and free information, including:
  • child fingerprinting
  • bicycle registration
  • document shredding
  • home security
  • fire safety
  • drug and alcohol awareness and prevention for children and teenagers
  • senior citizen services
  • CAPS and police canine unit
  • and more.
Food and refreshments will also be available, including hot dogs, snow cones, cotton candy, popcorn, lemonade and water.

Balloons will also be provided for local children.
