Pettaway residents came out to observe National Night Out, Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at the neighborhood alert center (East Broadway Alert Center). The Pettaway Neighborhood Association extends a heartfelt “thank you” to Alert Center Facilitator, Maggie Hawkins and the Alert Center Team for organizing this annual observance. Nearly 50 Pettaway residents including children came together to fellowship and celebrate community.
The program included presentations from the City of Little Rock Code Enforcement Team, Fire Department, COP Officer Nellums, Ward 1 Board of Director, Erma Hendrix, Pettaway Neighborhood Association President, Carol Tabron, Mayor Stodola and more.
Residents heard from the longest residing Pettaway resident, Mrs. Boyle who recently turned 97 years young. She shared how she has seen the community transition and stuck around when it was experiencing significant challenges including issues of safety and general neglect of services and attention.
She talked about the work that went into acquiring the Alert Center and supporting the community. Mrs. Boyle stated that we in the room are the community and welcomed the new families into the neighborhood.
A wonderful and inspired evening was had by all.
Be mindful of people who stop by your home. Are they there for legitimate reasons or are they there to case your home? I don’t have to remind you of how desperate times are right now. That person who is in your yard or knocking on your door or keeps walking or driving by really slow past your home; do you really know them? Have you seen them near your home before? You hear, what they are saying, but what do they really want. Unless you know them and really trust them, never let them into your home. NO matter what their reason for stopping by is. Some of the excuses that are commonly used are as follows:
“I need to use your telephone because I have an emergency.”
“May I use your bathroom?”
“I would like to know if you need to have your lawn mowed, raked or trimmed?”
“Would you like to buy this or that?” Don’t be a victim!
Please remember to get their description! Remember to observe what they are wearing, what is their approximate age, what is their height and weight, what is their hair color style, and the type of automobile that they are driving. Also try and get the tag number.
Don’t be a victim!
