Phoenix Councilwoman Thelda Williams hosted the District 1 Breakfast at the DoubleTree Hotel at MetroCenter. The guest speaker this month was Phoenix Water Services Deputy Director Darlene Helm.
Thelda spoke of upcoming signs which will encourage individuals to not give their change to panhandlers but rather to support organizations and services which provide long-lasting care such as:
- Central Arizona Shelter Services
- Andre House
- Salvation Army
- The Phoenix Rescue Mission
- St. Mary's Food Bank
- and others.
Thelda mentioned that the November Breakfast will be the THIRD Friday of the month to avoid a conflict with Thanksgiving the following week. The speaker is slated to be the operator of a new methadone clinic to open soon in District 1.

September 25, 2019 - CPCA General Meeting
It was good seeing all who attended our first meeting of the fall and the message from our featured speaker this month Dave Munsey. Dave covered a host of statistics and cases where drownings could have been prevented. He is obviously very passionate about this.
Here's some pictures from the September 16, 2019 Coffee with a Cop - McDonalds - Peoria Av & 35th Ave
We are looking forward to visiting you on GAIN Day !!
If you are having an event but were not able to register with PD, send a quick note to CommunityInfo@cpcaaz.org and let us know your Block Watch Name, address of the event and time of the event.
We have teamed up with one of our partners.... the Cactus Wren Block Watch who through a Grant has arranged to purchase and provide enough GAIN buckets to insure that every Block Watch that has a GAIN event will receive one.
Block Watches MUST be registered with PD to receive a bucket. Be sure you have registered your GAIN event with the Police Department.
Pictured at right is the "team" dropping off the buckets. Neighborhood members (L-R) are: Joyce Steinmetz, Sandi Strand, John Curfman, Stan Bates, and Fred May. Frank Steinmetz was also there but on the other side of the camera.
