 - - - - - - - -        Send us an email!      - - - - - - - -


This newsletter is "for neighbors, by neighbors."  If you have something you'd like to share with 150 or so neighbors who live near or around Eastside Park, drop us an email and we'll put it in the newsletter. 


Did you do some fall cleaning and have a bunch of stuff you’d like to try to freecycle among your neighbors? Drop us a line, you can include pictures if you’d like and we’ll figure out a way to get them into the newsletter.


We also need to hear from neighbors who want to organize play groups, initiate various improvement projects or who have items for sale/to lend/to borrow, etc.


If you attend city council meetings, committee meetings, school leadership meetings, etc. please send us an email (rbespn@willisbros.net) about what was covered and we'll put it in the newsletter so that other neighbors can hear about it.


Please tell your neighbors about the newsletter! If you want, you can even print out a flyer to hand out to your neighbors. The flyer can be downloaded here:






Marion St. police incident report followup

Jim Willis, Harrison Ave.


Last week the following appeared on the RBPD police blotter:

Theft reported on 1-10-10 at Marion Street residence. Victim reported unknown person(s) stole three items from residence, that being a white gold ring with several diamonds, a Tiffany silver bracelet and an IPOD-Nano. Ptl. Michael Campanella.

We followed up with Chief McCarthy to see if there were any additional details to share w/ neighbors and he provided the following:
 The items were last seen about one month prior to when the victim discovered them missing.  They are unsure of exactly when the theft occurred.  There were no signs of any forcible entry, which leads us to believe that that most likely, the suspect was someone who the victim knew or had a legitimate reason to be at their home, i.e. service technician, cleaning service, etc.  We don’t have any other reports of burglaries or thefts in the area which would indicate any type of trend.  If anyone has any questions please tell them not to hesitate in contacting us.




Collecting Books for RBPL Book Sale

Beth Hanratty, South St.  jfeh@comcast.net


Once again we are preparing for an AMAZING book sale at the library but we


are low on children's books.  If anyone is interested in clearing off their

shelves and donating I would be happy to take all your gently read but no

longer loved books.  Just leave them on my porch (78 South Street) or I can

pick them up any time.


If you have grown up books  to donate, I will also take those, it's just

that we are low on the children's so I'm trying to focus on that!


Thanks a bunch and spread the word...I'll travel for pick up.  There is also

a box in the Children's Department at the library for donations.

Neighborhood Meeting with our new Chief of Police

Our newly appointed Chief of Police, Steve McCarthy asked that I reach out to neighbors to see if there is an interest in having a group discussion with him regarding our needs and concerns w/r/t the police department in the area of Eastside Park. There are a variety of ways that we could have this discussion. If there is a lot of interest from neighbors we can organize a meeting at the middle school or some other large community venue. If interest is minimal we could organize another neighborhood potluck dinner at someone's house.

Please get back to me at sjwillis@willisbros.net indicating:
- if you'd be interested in attending such an event
- if you'd be interested in hosting if it's a small group
- if you would be unable to attend the meeting but would like us to raise a point/concern with Chief McCarty, please email us a description of the issue and any possible suggestions you  have regarding its resolution.
