WALBRIDGE - Talking to children about the Sandy Hook school shootings is the topic of Wednesday's block watch meeting in the village.
A professional counselor will be the guest speaker, and will also answer questions.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. in the municipal building, 111 N. Main St.
Last month, 28 people died in the elementary school shootings in Newtown, Conn.
The Walbridge Block Watch Program is a community partnership involving neighborhood volunteers, law enforcement and other community services. The program aims to make neighborhoods safer.
The goal of the program is to coordinate efforts by police and the community. Block Watch members serve as a catalyst to challenge neighborhood residents to accept a share of the responsibility of the overall quality of life in the village.
The program works when residents report suspicious people and activities to the Walbridge Police Department. Residents are also asked to communicate with neighbors so they know their habits, and out-of-the ordinary activities can be reported.
For more information call Ptl. Jeff Goetz at (419) 666-1447.
