KICK-OFF SOCIAL EVENT
On Saturday evening, September 8th 2012, Debby Hrusa and Pat Mounicou hosted a “Get To Know Your Neighbor Event” at Debby’s home on Thunder Ridge. As the first such even, it was a great success with 35 plus attending. Most attendees brought some type of delicious food to share and all had a great time. See the gallery tab for some of the photos of the event. We want to sincerely thank Debby and Pat who walked the neighborhood hand-delivering the invitations for the event. Hopefully, with the start of our new web site, we will eventually establish an electronic contact list for our CVHOA members as well as a directory.

POTENTIAL ANNUAL EVENTS
National Neighbors Night Out
National Night Out is an annual event promoting neighborhood safety and is typically held on the 1st Tuesday of October. National Night Out generates awareness of and support for drug and crime prevention; strengthens neighborhood spirit and police/community relations; lets criminals know that neighborhoods are organized in fighting crime. All residents of Olive Branch are asked to turn on their porch lights. It provides an opportunity for the entire family to meet your neighbors at a block party or barbecue. Come join the fun and festivities. Come meet our police officers and learn how to fight back against crime. Block parties are typically held from 8:00 – 9:00pm on various streets throughout the neighborhood.

In essence, Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program that stresses education and common sense. It teaches citizens how to help themselves by identifying and reporting suspicious activity in their neighborhoods. It provides citizens with the opportunity to make their neighborhoods safer and improve the quality of life.
