National Night Out

This sounds like something the WPCNA would/should/could be interested in helping the neighborhoods participate in. http://www.nationaltownwatch.org/nno/

Marc Pollitzer

I know this may be a bit premature, however, as it will be Memorial Day and we remember those that serve, I would like to have the WPCNA consider a lasting memory of Marc Pollitzer. As soon as I heard of his premature passing, I immediately thought, how best to remember him?
The Marc Pollitzer Community Service Award. To be presented by the WPCNA annually to the citizen of White Plains that best exemplifies the ideals that Marc tried to impart on us all and that would make him proud; service to the neighborhood and to the City with dedication, humility, and leadership.
Not to be a monetary award as there is no price you can put on the spirit of volunteerism that he brought to his work, yet a prestigious award, in the form of a plaque presented at a formal dinner honoring the recipient and others, that should follow strict guidelines of application, review, and voting by representatives of the community.
