Pictures from our G.A.I.N Party

Filed under: GAIN ::

Lots of good food was on hand …

Lots of Trails neighbors, too.

The party filled the cul-de-sac most of the evening.

Lots of new friendships were formed throughout The Trails

The face painting clowns were a hit!

The kids had fun checking-out the engine when Scottsdale Fire Department came around. Hard to know who enjoyed it more, the kids or the fire fighters.

So, Have You Seen Our Blockwatch Signs?

So, Have You Seen Our Blockwatch Signs?

They’ve been posted for a couple weeks. While the scary-looking all-seeing eye likely won’t likely have much power for running off the Bad Guys, there is something that will. And YOU possess it.

As the sign says, “We look out for each other.” Professional thieves “case” their targets before they strike. If they see people around; people who look like they’re alert and watching out for who belongs in the neighborhood and who doesn’t, the professionals will move on to more opportune targets. So one way to help is to keep an observing eye on someone who appears not to be a Trails resident.

Here’s something else that might interest you. We’re having another Block Watch meeting at the Granite Reef Senior Center (just off the NW corner of McDowell and Granite Reef Rd behind the AM/PM market) Thursday, October 25th, from 7:30 – 8:30 p.m.

A City of Scottsdale Police detective will be at the meeting to discuss a topic of great importance to our neighborhood — especially, though not exclusively — for anyone who is a parent. More details at the meeting. Come and have dessert with us!
