South Seminole Heights’ Quarterly Newsletter
South Seminole Heights Civic Association would like to extend a hearty thank you to Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners and Hillsborough County Office of Neighborhood relations for awarding us a Neighborhood Mini-Grant for Fiscal Year 2016. The Neighborhood Mini-Grant is to support activities that improve communities, strengthen neighborhood associations and encourage civic involvement. The grant was awarded to fund “The Banner” to be printed and delivered door-to-door in 2016. This will allow us more time to sell ad space and help “The Banner” to become self-supporting. If you are interested in advertising, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message the SSHCA page on Facebook!
The Crime Watch Committee, consisting of South Seminole Heights residents, reports and communicates issues with the intent of providing information quickly in order to reduce crime in our community. Our purpose is to increase awareness of suspicious and unlawful activities, share crime prevention best practices, facilitate communication between neighboring watch groups and police, and distribute alerts to our residents. To get involved, email Leslie Curry at email@example.com.
Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every other month. For next meeting date, please check our calendar. You can also join our Crime Watch Facebook group to stay informed about local crime activity.
