204 Neighbourhood Watch has been helping Wolseley Watch to formalize its own neighbourhood watch group. For months, the former provided time walking with and mentoring the latter, and including providing Wolseley Watch some patrolling logistics need. Generous realtors Charmaine Hernandez and Maneet Jassal offered to sponsor patrolling vests and flashlights. They brought the vests with Wolseley Watch print to the patrolling at Wolseley on December 5. Another generous donor of flashlights is Floyd Collins.
How about giving the gift of life this season? With low population, a mere accident with 20 people casualty is enough to deplete the blood supply in Manitoba and other provinces. The facilitator who gave advocacy training to 204 Neighbourhood Watch group on the evening of December 11th mentioned that this scenario happened with the Humboldt Broncos crash that killed 16 and injured 13. Also on same evening, several members of the patrolling group donated blood.
Because there is no reason to have empty table this Christmas, for 3 days (December 18,19 and 20) 204 Neighbourhood Watch volunteered to deliver Christmas Cheer Board hampers to houses. Patrollers and family members joined together to ensure recipients will receive their gifts in time for Christmas. Mortgage specialist Marilyn Magtoto’s young son, Christian, offered to be the one to hand the turkey to the recipient family.
