Nearly 3 years ago a decision was made to establish a regular Neighborhood Watch group that would be inclusive of all the communities served by Kahakai Blvd. We decided to adopt the NW format most popular with communities; Block Captains. Thanks to many of you we have been successful in reducing the incidents of crime in our communities and especially in those with Block Captains. Thanks to your participation at the monthly meetings decisions and plans were made and executed successfully, including the last event, the Craft Fair at Keonepoko School!
Thanks especially to Sandy Richter and Suzan Thompson for their consistent willingness to step up and assume leadership responsibilities for a sense of continuity throughout the entire history of this NW Group. We have received a status of recognition by the powers that be as a well-organized and responsible NW group. Kudos for the hard work everyone.
We are heading into unchartered territory with the advancement of the Lava Flow towards our communities. The communities are in flux with some having already evacuated, others planning to and still others hanging out here but looking at options in the event they must evacuate.
The advisory team met yesterday and agreed this next meeting will be an important meeting as we need to discuss the future of our group going forward. Please program/mark your calendars to attend the NW monthly meeting next Wednesday, November 12 at 130p at the Hawaiian Beaches County Park. Decisions as a group will be made there and your input is requested.
While the block captain format/model is what our group adopted 3 years ago there is another type of member class -- ‘Window Watchers’. Fairly certain we all fall into this category. Remember, with the influx of strangers through our community when the Railroad extension to Nanawale is opened we then become host to the traffic from 130 being diverted through our community. We will need to be most vigilant window watchers keenly observant and ready to report any suspicious behavior.
Important meeting next Wednesday. Hope to see you all there.
