Support 1st Precinct’s Community Police!

We received a message from Ann with a request to remind us all about this community event…

It’s almost time for the fourth annual “Thanks, RPD”

Once again on New Year’s Eve we will carry tasty treats to the officers at 1st precinct as a token of our appreciation and in recognition of what they do for us. For the past few years some residents of Union Hill have spearheaded a “thank you” to the officers at 1st precinct who put their lives on the line for us; and we invite anyone served by 1st precinct officers to join us.

We make two deliveries on New Year’s Eve that are timed to provide all personnel, regardless of shift, with not just such things as cookies and chips and drinks, but with hot pizza.

The first delivery on New Year’s Eve will be made at 4 p.m. to provide treats for the day shift going off duty and the evening shift coming on duty. The second delivery will be made at 11 p.m. to top up treats for the evening shift going off duty and the first shift of the new year coming on duty….including fresh pizza (we figure pizza delivered at 4 p.m. is either all gone or cold by shift change).

Neighbors, grown up or not, join us at 2501 Q Street on December 31 at 4 p.m. at the front door of the precinct – with or without a treat – just to meet and say thanks to some of the people who work to protect us.

If you’re not up for baking cookies or don’t have time to shop for soda, we’ll purchase and deliver things for you. You can make a financial donation no later than December 29 to:

Nancy Lampert —
Ann Wortham —

(Your donations may also be used for the purchase of things like napkins, cups, ice, and plates.)

Joy of the season to you and all of your loved ones.

Glad you posted the notice of Union Hill’s annual “THANKS to RPD.”

And I regret a need to complain for posting the notice, something CHPN certainly didn’t have to do – but would it be possible to post a less offensive/more meaningful picture to accompany the notice? Hopefully the people hosting this event aren’t upset at my interference here.

For instance, I don’t think the city would be upset if a photo of the front of the precinct itself were used. There’s one on the city site, although maybe the waving flag is as much a trigger as a cop in uniform.

There are signs posted in front yards throughout the city, including in the east end, claiming to love and welcome everybody; but I think a lot of people in the CHPN neighborhood don’t really mean those sentiments when it comes to cops.

But also in the CHPN neighborhood there are many who think cops truly are our “thin blue line.”

All of these sorts of people live within the reach of CHPN; and some are even cops or ex-cops or have family members who are cops.

Putting “regret to complain”, is an oxymoron.

Don’t half-ass it.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

A warm thanks to caring community members from Union Hill, Church Hill North, and Fulton Hill who came together with donations of food and finances to help make the fourth annual thanks to RPD’s First Precinct the best so far – with special thanks to Lena of the Inn at Patrick Henry’s who served up a huge dose of good luck and good fortune for the New Year with a family recipe!
