Crime Watch Meeting Postponed
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The temporary committee of the Stamford/Clarksburg Community Watch has decided to postpone the next meeting to Feb. 20, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. This will allow our team to go over the information that is brought back from the Crime Watch Meeting in Washington, D.C., at the end of this month. We are postponing this meeting so that the next big meeting can be full of informative handouts that will help make this Crime Watch group a success.
The group was scheduled to meet this weekend.
The response to join the volunteer committee has been poor. We need a few individuals to participate in order to make this a successful.
To sign-up, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, contact number and how you would like to volunteer. Go to www.townwatch.com for more information.
