G.A.I.N. 2012 Was A Great Success!

More than 20 residents and families turned out for Trail’s 2012 G.A.I.N. breakfast, “Getting Arizonans Involved in Neighborhoods.”  Neighborhood Watch Captain Harry Ryons invited Scottsdale Police and Fire to drop by and visit.  It was a great time for homeowners to visit with and ask questions of first responders as they enjoyed a continental breakfast Saturday morning, October 27th.  Ryons, a retired Patrol Sgt from L.A.P.D, later addressed residents with tips and ideas on how to make their homes more resistant to break-ins, and how neighbors can more effectively watch out for each other.

Requested 'admission price' to the G.A.I.N. Breakfast was canned goods for the homeless, to be given to City of Scottsdale's El Dorado Community Center.

What homeowners gave to help the homeless amounted to two bins full!
