Hello Neighbors!

Neighborhood Watch is once again revamping and we need you! We will combine our efforts with the Social Committee and make this years goal to get neighbors out meeting each other. Your involvement is welcome, needed and appreciated by both committees. Let us know your ideas/ suggestions!

For the month of May we are asking anyone to volunteer as Committee Chairs and Block Captains.

Committee Chairs are those who would like an active part in planning and carrying out our duties for events and meetings. We need 1 to 3 people to join us. You can email us your interest or let us know at the BBQ!

Block Captains, this group will be the liaison on your street to help with communication between the two committees. It would be great to have one block captain to every 10 to 15 houses. Your job is to be open to neighbors who may have something to say to the committees, or you may have info to forward via a note card given by the committees. Very simple but so important for all of us!

So with this in mind time for a contest! READY – SET – GO!

Be the first to sign up for your street and win a prize!

We will hand out the prizes at our June meeting so we have one month to get as many of you as we can to help out! If you are interested please email us with your name, address and phone number and we will get in touch! include any questions you may have. EmailWaterleafneighborhoodwatch@gmail.com

 

Upcoming events- mark your calendars!

June 3 – Sidewalk Coloring, get your family and chalk out front and get some art on the sidewalks! Imagination – please create a safety message/design. Then take a walk through the neighborhood and enjoy. Meet some neighbors!

July 4 – neighborhood parade and NW first annual Stars and Stripes Yard Award. Prize given for most patriotic yard display. Watch for details in June newsletter.

The neighborhood has been quiet this past month in terms of incidents. But please remember, the warm weather brings many outside. Slow down on the roads, keep eyes open for all using the sidewalks and streets. Keep our pets on leashes. Lights on out front in the evenings.

Stay safe,
Michele, Jeff and Jason

National Night Out is designed to:

2. Generate support and participation in crime efforts

3. Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community relations

4. Let criminals know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back

During the event, residents in neighborhoods throughout Austin and across Texas are asked to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and spend the evening outside with their neighbors, police officers, firefighters and EMS paramedics. (There is no scheduled time for visits from various departments but they will be stopping by).
