Community watch group to host family fun day

| June 20, 2013

COSHOCTON – The Himebaugh Lot will be full of fun activities Saturday, June 22 during an event hosted by the Greater Coshocton Community Watch Group.

“We want people to know that there is a watch group and that they can participate,” said Barb Turner from the group. “It’s not just for our area. It’s for the whole community.”

The event will be held from 12 to 3 p.m. and feature a cookout, games, pony rides and door prizes. Deputy Steve Fox also will be there to do finger printing and handout watch group brochures.

“It’s just going to be a lot of fun for kids and adults,” Turner said.

The Himebaugh Lot is located next to Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, where the watch group meets at 6 p.m. the fourth Thursday of the month.

“It’s going pretty good,” Turner said. “We probably have 12 people that come, but we need more.”

The group is still in the organization phase and is asking people to be watchful of what happens in their neighborhoods.

“I keep my eye out where I live and people having problems with a few neighbors have come to me with worries,” Turner said. “They are going to start coming to the watch group and want to get involved. People just have to go out and watch and see what’s going on and believe me there is plenty going on.”

She also is happy that three city council members are attending meetings.

“I’m sure there are a lot of people that don’t know about the group,” Turner said. “They should come to the picnic, enjoy a fun time with the kids and get involved. If you want to help the community, now is the time to do it.”
