Safety and Criminal Awareness In Our Community

The St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus and the Troy Police Department are teaming up to offer this special presentation to our St. Anastasia family and the Troy community:

Monday, February 22, 2016 – 7:00 – 8:30 PM in the Davidson Center

Our world is changing every day with more frequent acts of violence and criminal activity. Each of us needs to increase our awareness within our community to keep our family and ourselves safe from the violence that is occurring. We have all heard about devastating violence that has hit our communities at movie theaters, shopping malls, places of worship, schools, businesses, highways, banks, military recruitment centers and the list goes on.

Please join us as we learn about all the important information that our Troy Police Department Law Enforcement Team has put together to present to all of us so we can be more prepared for what could happen unexpectedly at any time, at any place.

Points of interest:

  • What to be aware of
  • What to look for
  • What to do in case of being involved in a violent situation
  • What to do in case of an emergency.
  • Who to contact if you see someone or something suspicious.

There will be plenty of time at the end of the presentation for you to ask questions regarding this very important subject that is affecting our community and nation.

Light refreshments will be provided by the Knights of Columbus.

Project Linus Blanket Party

We will be hosting the next Project Linus Blanket making party on Saturday, February 20th from 9 am to 3 pm in the Davidson Center

We are in need of as many pieces of 2.5 yards of pre-washed flannel that you can provide. We also need satin blanket binding in red, black, brown, orange, turquoise, hot pink and any prints. We are always in need of baby soft yarn. If the thought of going to a fabric store is overwhelming we will be happy to accept donations and do the shopping for you. Because we shop the sales we are able to make a flannel blanket with a satin binding on one edge for less than $5.00. Project Linus is a 501C3, so your donations are tax-deductible.

If you are planning to come and work at the blanket party please call or e-mail your reservation to Allyson Wyckhuyse, or call her: 248-828-7511.

 

May God Bless Your Day.
