Ornaments, Cookies and Books and Gifts

Interested in making holiday ornaments? There will be an Ornament Making Class on Saturday, December 11 at the Willye White Community Center at 1610 W. Howard from 10-11 am.

The Park Council will be there with a book and bake sale to meet and greet neighbors. The council voted at last months meeting to do some fundraising with home made baked goods and childrens books. In addition, we are hoping to set up a collection box for canned goods and small items for families in need for this holiday season. Please stop by and make a small donation for the kids.

Beat 2422 Meeting

Those who regularly attend CAPS Beat 2422 agreed with me that this area needs a monthly meeting - not a quarterly one as prescribed after the cutback in the program that sent CAPS officers to patrol our streets.

The next Beat 2422 meeting is tomorrow at 7:00 PM at Willye White Community Center, 1610 W. Howard. Perhaps we can learn more about the shooting of a person and a vehicle last night on Howard.

On a side note - the Willye White Park Advisory Council will be setting up a collection box at the center for donations of canned goods and small items such as children's gloves, small toys, games for children in need this holiday season. If you'd like, please bring a donation to the beat meeting or drop in Saturday morning (see previous post) for the book and bake sale.
