West-End Block Party for YOUTH!

Friends, 

There will be a Block Party BBQ being organized by the Bridgeview/University area youth, supported by New Beginnings, Our West End, and the Bridgeview Community Outreach Program Inc. We would like to highlight some of the great work being done in our community and will do this by setting up information booths inside the Windsor Amateur Boxing Club. The booths will therefore be protected in case of poor weather.

This is an opportunity for agencies to promote their services to youth 12-18 years of age in a relaxed and positive context. We are hoping to attract adolescents from the area by offering a meal, games, and prizes.

When: Friday September 27th, 3:30-7:00. Booths set up from 4:00pm-6:00pm.
Where: 1899 Grove - Bridgeview Park and Windsor Amateur Boxing Club

I will be posting more about this event in the future. In the meantime, please mark your calendars and let's try and get as many youth out as possible.

Break-In at 1000 Block of California

Friends,

I have some unfortunate news, there was a violent home invasion at the 1000 block of California.

You can read the story here:

Please be on the lookout and contact Windsor Police if you see or hear anything. Neighbourhood Watch is also very aware of the situation.
