Calling all block captains: It’s party time

Attention block club captains: As I am sure you are aware from last month’s LampLighter, June Hurt put out a challenge to all of you guys to get your block clubs going!

It is time to get those barbecue grills lit, the drinks flowing and the neighbors over to meet and greet. We have new welcome packets at the office for pick up if you have new residents in your area. Stop by and grab a few to have them on hand to drop off to your new residents.

They contain great info on community awareness, Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) and even local restaurant menus.

Also, it has been decided based on feedback from most of you that we will have the National Night Out on the actual day this year. Please mark your calendars for Aug. 7. This will help in getting donations for the event as well as help get all of the neighbors involved since children will be out of school.

As usual, pop tabs will be collected at the CYCA festival booth in September, so get going on collecting those tabs. June prides herself on beating everyone each year, so lets have a new champion in 2012!

If you don’t have a block captain in your area and would like to sign up or throw a party to generate some interest, please contact: for more info.
