Last year ended on a very positive note with the billboard campaign bringing us national media coverage. Once again the opposition gave us a golden opportunity to educate and tell our stories. Thank you to everyone who participated.

We are beginning 2015 with much to do.

As you read through this newsletter you will see many opportunities in which you can help make a difference. Our community conversation regarding our community's relationship with our local police departments is yet one more example of progress made over the last year. Please join us as we dialogue with Richmond, Henrico and Chesterfield officers as to how we can strengthen even more those affiliations.

The police dialogue is but one conversation that we will host this year. If you have an idea for a program, please let me know. This is your community center and the more input we receive, the more useful we can be to the community.

A great new year wish to everyone.
