Your party has been selected for a trolley stop! Each year the Chief of Police, Mayor of Arlington, and other selected citizens of Arlington stop by a few parties to mingle with guests. The trolley will be at your location about 7:45 pm.

Due to advancing technology...  we are requesting yo to take action: 

1) This year are asking you to sign up for email news concerning Summer Ken Watch Neighborhood and SW Arlington Property Owners - Community Watch, (SWAPO-CW) because Nextdoor is becoming a polluted communication source for important neighborhood news.
Please sign up on this link.

2) Also I believe we have found a stronger source of Crime Reports and a way of building a safer neighborhood by embracing technology through Ring. (The video doorbell company). We will have display material at the block party. Please sign up here for the mobile app:
Sign up for "Neighbors by Ring" mobile app and consider purchasing a video doorbell.

Sponsors: Duane Damon, Jeff Biggs, Jump-A-Round bounce houses, & David Hart.
