June HTNA Meeting - Neighborhood Safety!

Come hear from a local police detective about a recent drug bust in our Highland Terrace neighborhood, the danger associated with pot houses, and what signs to look for around your home. Illegal marijuana is a big industry in our area and can bring violent crime into our neighborhoods. Come hear from a local expert and get your questions answered at our next neighborhood meeting. The meeting will be at City Hall (Room 303) on June 14th from 7-8pm. We will walk over to Jerseys for some social time afterwards.


Reminder: We will be collecting book donations for the big sale at the Shoreline Swingin' Summer Eve event in July. Gather your books, games, videos and CDs. Highland Terrace topped other neighborhoods last year in number of items collected! We will have information on donation sites in our next newsletter!
