Dear Partners & Supporters of Coommunity Partners United,
I want to thank all the partners who attended and participated in our 11th Annual Western Addition National Night Out Event on Tuesday August 7th. I was amazed at both the attendance & positive feedback we received from community members. Many felt it was the best to date and thanks to all. I especially want to thank Mayor Lee, Supervisors Olague & Wiener, Bicycle Bob, Captain Mannix & Officers of Northern Station, Joaquin & Luis of MONS, Mo’Magic, African American Arts & Culture Complex. Hamilton Recreation Center, Hayward Rec Connect, National Parks Service & Parks Conservancy, all the volenteers and SF Fire Dept Association for all your support & assistance. The event was a great example of how partners can come together & through collaboration celebrate the success of our highly successful Western Addition community policing program.
As we start our Second Decade, I want to build upon our success and start to focus on specific goals for the partners. The attached agenda is an example of what I feel we need to do. We have been succesful, among our youth, in our mission to foster a safe and caring community in the Wester Addition. Know it is time to branch out and create the same result in all our community. We need to come together to build stronger bonds between adults, schools, CBO’s, key institutions and City Government. If we move beyond our self interest and collaborate as partners to create a community vision based on equal opportunity, respect and shared resources we all come out as winners.
Thanks to all and please make time to attend the meeting.
