Garfield Park NW: Saturday @ 3:00

Garfield Park has witnessed an increase in suspicious activity over the past few months. To name a few: a break-in, a smashed door window, a shooting (non-fatal), lots of gun fire, suspicious interactions in the park, and....drum roll...a white Chevy. Oh yeah, a white Chevy.

The driver of the white Chevy, who seemed overly interested in our every move and was omnipresent at all hours of the day, spurred an impressive bout of neighborhood organizing. Neighbors e-mailed and called each other and the police department with information about Mr. Chevy's presence and activities. Officers spoke with the man over a week ago; we haven't seen him since. Chalk one up for team effort.

Not surprisingly, neighbors are looking forward to our monthly NW meeting, scheduled for this Saturday at 3:00 PM. All are welcome. If you live nearby and would like to visit, drop me a line back channel for the meeting location.
