Block Club information

Ever wanted to get to know your neighbors better, but not know where to start?

Join us on June 24 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at INRC located at 1802 N. Illinois Street for a free training on the formation and ongoing support of block clubs in your neighborhood. Block clubs are an ideal way to support grassroots engagement and communication throughout a neighborhood. Block clubs can be a great forum for public safety discussions and crime watch formation, as well as an avenue for social gatherings and camaraderie. Get information on how to start a block club, hear from a panel of seasoned block club leaders, and learn about how to continue the efforts once they are underway.

Pizza and drinks will be served. RSVP your plans to attend to Sara VanSlambrook at or 396-0588 x17.
