You are invited to join us for the biggest block party in the City of Fort Worth, Tuesday, Oct. 7, from 6-8 p.m. as we give crime in Fairmount a going away party. This event is sponsored by the Fairmount Citizens Patrol, Fairmount Neighborhood Association, and the Fort Worth Police Department. The location this year will move to the Bender's side yard at 1712 6th Ave.
This event shows that our neighborhood is organized, and fighting back against crime. There will be a bounce house for the kids, and possibly police horses and a fire truck. There will be information on how to get involved in the Fairmount Citizens on Patrol, the neighborhood Crime Watch program, the Fairmount Neighborhood Association, and other great information to make your home safe – plus a lot of fun for kids and adults. Members of the police, fire, code and health departments always attend to meet and greet. The Mayor, our City Council representative, our State Senator, and State Representative have been known to drop by as well.
This is a “covered dish” event. We have a lot of hungry guests to feed, so quantity counts. We will supply the chicken and tortillas for fajitas, lemonade, water, ice, plates, cups, and plastic ware, but we need neighbors to bring the sides and desserts. Please plan to bring things such as refried beans, rice, salsa, veggies, fruit, desserts, cookies, salads, grilled peppers and onions, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, ice cream, or anything else you can think of to go with fajitas.
This is your big chance to get involved and fight crime in Fairmount and meet some of the great neighbors that live in the Fairmount Historic District. So turn on those porch lights, bring a neighbor who you'd like to see get involved, and let’s take a bite out of crime.
