Greetings Upper Rockridge Neighbors,
URNA wishes all of you HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Yes, this is an extra edition of the Newsletter for December, mainly because we have news!
(This mailing is addressed to: Current and Former Members of URNA, Volunteers, Newsletter subscribers. Feel free to forward to anyone!)
1. OPD Meeting with all Associations: On December 3, we had a meeting with Captain Randy Wingate and FIVE neighborhood associations in Montclair. Much useful information exchanged and Cpt. Wingate was very helpful. Gordie will coordinate with surrounding associations too since we all have same goals and can learn from each others' processes... USEFUL INFO FROM OPD BELOW! Read it!
2. MEMBERSHIP DRIVE: We've seen a good number of people sign up for newsletters but we really need more URNA members to sustain/grow the patrols and cameras! You'll see door hangers for URNA on your door soon and please give to a neighbor if you're already a member. Any new Volunteers welcome to help market URNA and make us all safer!
3. Are you on NextDoor.com yet?! URNA has no formal relationship with the NextDoor.com web site (yet) but we urge you all to join that website to keep up to date on what's going on in the 'hood! Additionally, Oakland Police have accounts and often post useful info on crimes, statistics for our Area2, etc. You may only join the neighborhood of your house location and URNA spans several neighborhoods, so BE SURE to click on the Map and other surrounding areas to ensure that you see posts from them as well!
4. See the NEW MEMBER RATES below, and much useful information on our NEW URNA website!
