Instead of the Menlo Park Police talking on the phone, speeding around, riding up on bumpers, etc. This is something that should be implemented here as well. Maybe the community will be able to accept you on a positive note.

PS. I've been a resident here in Menlo Park (Belle Haven area) for my 37 years and all I know is Menlo Park, could some PLEASE tell me where East Menlo Park is.............

National Night Out was developed by Matt Peskin of the National Association of Town Watch in 1984. Matt Peskin is alleged to be considerably overpaid, consuming roughly 1/3 of his organization's annual budget on his salary and benefits. In 2005, his combined compensation totalled $297,000, typical for the CEO of a non-profit 50 times the size of NATW, according to NonProfit Times, a business publication covering nonprofit management.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
