National Night Out
Tomorrow night throughout Crescenta Valley, Glendale and Burbank neighbors will be participating in various National Night Out events. This gives community members an opportunity to meet with law enforcement and emergency responders to ask questions and to share their thoughts. It is also a way to show that as a community member you care about the quality of life in your area. My kids make fun of me for pushing these types of events because they say we live in “Mayberry” (aka Crescenta Valley area) and the crimes committed here are so small in comparison to others areas. It is because we as a community respond so enthusiastically to these types of pro-active events that our area is so safe. There are problems here, I have never sugar coated that point, but without our involvement things could be much worse. So I encourage everyone in their community and especially in mine to go out for a few hours on Tuesday and be part of a positive movement to protect our neighborhoods. And bring your family; my children will be volunteering at the event at Verdugo Hills Hospital….a little pay back for making fun of Mom.
