We had a great April general meeting this past Thursday. Officer Christopher Bianez of the Plano Police Department gave a highly entertaining presentation on “Property Safety” – with music and comedy included. He provided us with lots of suggestions on ways to prevent crime, and he even scared us a little by demonstrating how easy it is to knock down a door (yikes!). Luckily he had lots of practical solutions and kept us riveted through the entire presentation.
If you weren’t able to attend our meeting, but would like to hear more from Officer Bianez, he will be conducting additional safety seminars at Collin Creek Church during April. For more information contact Robert Posner at Collin Creek Church at 972.897.4397.
WOWDems member Sharon Hirsch gave us an update on her busy campaign for PISD Board of Directors Place 4. She is participating in forums and has speaking engagements galore, but she still needs your help. Can you be a poll greeter during early voting (April 27-May 5)? Go to vote4sharon.com for more details and to volunteer.
