Mailbag: WCO Info

Helen wrote in to ask:
Life's circumstances have me coming back to a piece of property that my mother left me. What exactly does your group do?
Unfortunately I work every weekend. It sounds as if you got to the meeting this past week. How many people are in this group?
The short answer to your first question is that the Warrendale Community Organization is a grassroots organization that strives to make life better for those who live, work or visit in Detroit's Warrendale neighborhood. Our current emphasis is on improving police response times and on resolving the number of vacant homes in our neighborhood.

There are currently a little more than 20 dues paying members of the WCO, although we are currently in launching a drive to bring that number up. For example, at our March general membership meeting, I as president of the WCO challenged every member to bring one more person with them to the April meeting.

The WCO holds its general membership meetings on the first Monday of each month in the school building at St. Thomas Aquinas Church, beginning at 7 p.m. The next one will be on Monday, April 7. Everyone in the neighborhood is welcome to attend.
