4-H Club wants more Youth

The 4-H Club of East Fort Worth recently held its annual Pancake Breakfast to celebrate the start of a new school year. The children all had on their 4-H aprons and were eager to serve the guests. (Restaurant Owners: hire these kids! They know how to wait tables and keep a clean dining hall.)

As always, hot fresh pancakes with syrup, sausage, orange juice or coffee filled the plates and glasses of the diners.

The 4-H Club teaches children how to work hard in the community and learn new skills. They are the youth you see at the Optimist Club Spagetti Supper and the Lion's Chili Supper. The older children help guide the younger children, and their enthusiasm is contagious. Being around them makes me happy.

Sponsor Lois Bogoush keeps the club running, and earning national recognition within the 4-H organization. This small club has a dedicated core of adults who provide mentoring.

These children from our neighborhoods are the future of Fort Worth. Help support their activities as they develop into the young adults we need to make our city grow and thrive.

To join the 4-H Club that meets at Meadowbrook United Methodist Church, 3900 Meadowbrook Drive, call Lois Bogoush at 817-846-7885.

Volunteer and help keep
Fort Worth safe

With more than 730 members, the Citizens on Patrol program makes a positive impact on Fort Worth's quality of life.

The Fort Worth Police Department is looking for a few good volunteers to join the nationally-acclaimed Citizens on Patrol program.

As part of the larger Code Blue, the Fort Worth Citizens on Patrol (COP) program was started in 1991 as a reaction to the high crime levels in Fort Worth communities. Since the creation of the program, it has been shown that the volunteers of Citizens on Patrol have helped to lower crime by as much as 40 percent.

Upcoming COP training dates:

Sept. 15, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., 1289 Hemphill Ave.

Oct. 13, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., 1901 N. Las Vegas Trail.

Nov. 10, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., 1100 Nashville Ave.

Applicants must be 18 years or older, live in the Fort Worth city limits, pass a background check and attend the four-hour training. Interested residents can apply online.

To learn more, call 817-392-4182.

The Christian Samurai Karate Program at Meadowbrook UMC

The Christian Samurai Karate Program is a non-profit self defense class taught at the Meadowbrook United Methodist Church at 3900 Meadowbrook Drive.

We teach martial arts class in the Gymnasium every Sunday from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm. The program is sponsored by Grand Master Richard Morris, 10th degree black belt, and retired FWPD Sergeant. The nominal  fees cover the uniforms and expenses.

Many students are sponsored, no child is turned away because of their inability to pay the low monthly fee of $15.00.  We are pleased to let those in the neighborhood know about this wonderful opportunity to learn self defense in a safe Christian environment.

Need more info? Call RayAnn Tenorio, 2nd Degree Black Belt, Program Manager at 817 939 3788.

Register now, then celebrate Fort Worth's night out against crime on Tuesday, October 2

Texans will celebrate the 35th annual National Night Out on Oct. 2.

The Fort Worth Police Department invites all residents to participate in the celebration. Residents are asked to turn on their outside lights and spend the evening outdoors with their neighbors, public safety officers and other city personnel.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide. Texas celebrates the event on the first Tuesday in October. Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and more.

National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten awareness of crime prevention.
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts.
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back against crime.

Sign up by Sept. 27.
