The Stanardsville Area Community Safety Initiative (SACSI) has been established to spearhead efforts to improve the quality of life in Stanardsville, with a focus on neighborhood safety. Two public forums have been held over the past few months, attended by some 85 people, to address concerns and identify solutions to ensure a safe and viable community. The group is sponsoring a Community Walk-Around and Block Party on Saturday, April 28, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM on the grounds of Grace Episcopal Church. Food and entertainment will be provided, and information booths will be set up by various local service providers. The event will begin with a walk around town to familiarize people with the neighborhood and observe possible sites for a community park. Everyone, especially children and young adults, are urged to attend.
*STAR* is directly involved in organizing this safety initiative, and the Board has agreed to accept tax deductible donations to *STAR*, earmarked for SACSI, to pay expenses associated with the Block Party. Donations in any amount are appreciated.
