Flashlight Tour

Due to the inclement weather our Flashlight Tour of areas with problem street lighting on 3/2/09 was canceled and rescheduled for 3/9/09. Even though the weather set us back, the event was a success. Almost 20 people came including Police Cheif Lewis and Mr. Monir Ahmed, Director of Public Works. Members of the Christian Coalition Against Violence showed their support and dedication to public safety issues in Chester by joining us. We would like to thank everyone for attending and look forward to working with you more.
