CORNERSTONE VILLAGE BLOCK CLUB UPDATE:
By Jim Grenwick
You may be a Street Captain and not know it. As a result of being out and about on my street, I have met four new residents of Radnor. Whenever I see what looks to be construction or renovation going on I immediately stop and meet the people. Yes, I am looking to determine if they are legitimate. Yes, I extend a friendly greeting and a sincere welcome to the neighborhood. We exchange introductions and they typically give me their contact number and tell me to call them in case I see anything suspicious at their house. Friendliness and getting to know your neighbors is the basic principle of success as a Street or Block Captain. Someone has to trust someone; set yourself to be the one trusted.
Every chance you get at this time of year, walk the street. Or, as Rose and I do, ride bikes smiling , waving, and meeting the people throughout the neighborhood. We make it a point to show friendliness. You would think we were running for office. If they live here, they are special to me. You may be the only person to greet and say “Hello” of the neighbors. It can be contagious. We give them a Cornerstone Village business card and tell them that our purpose is to assist the residents in making this community a safer and more beautiful one to live in.
