Our December Monthly Meeting 2009 and Christmas Party

SLIDESHOW: http://picasaweb.google.com/capccchi/CAPCCChristmasPartyAndDecemberMonthlyMeeting# We, at the Chatham Avalon Park Community Council, held our December Monthly Meeting, and Christmas Party at the 2ND Floor Meeting Room, Northern Trust Bank, 78 & State Streets. Robert Shaw, Sylvester Baker, Judge Thaddeus Wilson, Justice John O. Steele, Elgie Sims, among several politicians and lawyers vying for the Democratic primary set for February 2, 2010, spoke at length about their campaigns and for your support. The crime report supported the precaution of to "know your neighbors" and to report the "bad neighbors" when a crime occurs. Note was mentioned that a number of lawyers, born and reared in Chatham are returning as adults to be residents in their own right in Chatham. But when asked if they would set up offices in Chatham, Justice Steele, authoritatively said, "our people won't go to them." The bounty of refreshments made a great party after the meeting for all of our members and guest speakers.

Amazing, focus on politicians and not the local businesses especially those on 75th who have had a tough year.Its diappointing that there was no encouragement by this organization for residents to spend some money locally.

Once again that's your opinion and as we know opinions are...We want to reinterate that we were the first blog to tell the public about the Black Wall Street Project on 75th Street to help promote black businesses locally in our community...in any event, the refreshments for the Christmas Party were bought locally.

I don't know who you think you are writing to but I'm going to show some restraint because you don't have a clue.

Talking about some so called non profit that is not even located in this community several months ago is not the same as inviting the local businesses to the meeting and having their items on display or having the politicians purchase goods from these businesses and showing that they truly support this community.
