Chilliwack – Mark Strahl, MP for Chilliwack-Hope is hosting a Chilliwack Crime Prevention and Public Safety Open House, taking place next Thursday, July 7th.
“During discussions with local student Alayna Weiss, downtown business owners and other concerned residents, I was heartened to hear how many people in Chilliwack were looking for avenues to get involved in making our community a better place to live, work and raise their families” said Strahl. “However, many people didn’t know where to find out about the many opportunities that already exist. I am bringing together local community and government partners that offer volunteer opportunities to promote the work they do and encourage residents to get involved”.
The Open House will feature approximately a dozen community and government organizations that offer volunteer opportunities and ways to actively get involved in our community. There will be a wide variety of opportunities suitable for every age level, skill set and available time commitment. There will also be a number of short educational presentations aimed at protecting personal property and preventing residents from becoming victims of crime.
This event is taking place next Thursday, July 7th from 7-9pm at the Neighbourhood Learning Centre, located at 46361 Yale Road, on the Chilliwack Secondary School campus.
