Do you live in an organized neighborhood? Are you helping to bring your community together? Tell us about it!
August 6th is National Night Out— a night to celebrate our neighborhoods and bring neighbors together. National Night Out (or NNO) was introduced in 1984 in an effort to promote neighborhood camaraderie and involvement in crime prevention activities. In recognition of National Night Out, Councilmember Libby Schaaf – District 4 is offering FREE Oakland A’s tickets to the most organized D4 communities.*
There are three ways for a neighborhood to win:
1. Have the greatest total NNO block parties on August 6th
2. Have the greatest increase in total NNO block parties
3. Be named the most organized neighborhood in District Four
Please be sure to forward this email to your friends and neighbors…organized neighborhoods build community and public safety!
* Libby Schaaf’s office is still working out the details on the A’s tickets, so they cannot yet promise a specific number of tickets.

The Neighborhood Guard Board has release the new Bylaws.
New Organizations wishing to join Neighborhood Guard must agree and adhere to the Bylaws.
The Bylaws can be changed by the members of Neighborhood Guard, (details in section 14 of the bylaws), we expect you to actively work with us to make the bylaws better every year.
First chance for changing the bylaws will be at the Annual Members meeting in October (Section 7 of the Bylaws)
If you have suggestions or proposal for changes to the bylaws make sure you submit them well in advance before the meeting so that they can make it into the notice for the meeting. (Section 8 and 14 of the Bylaws)
The current Board agrees that the Bylaws as they stand are “wordy” and could use additional editing to make them shorter and friendlier to read. If you are a wordsmith, legal-eagle or just likes fixing bylaws, please join our Bylaws Committee 😉
