Join Sergeant Marchetti and Team Ventura PD for the annual Ventura County WALK Like MADD 1980s themed 5k on August 10 at 7:30 am at the Collection at River Park. We walk for victims, families and to stop drunk and drugged driving. This year we also walk in honor of Chris Prewitt a local Ventura Vice Principal who was struck and killed in April 2014. Chris was a remarkable community member who gave his all to improving the lives of local students. We walk in his memory and for all victims who have been impacted by drunk driving.

Neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of events ranging from small potlucks and BBQs to block parties. Some additional event ideas include, but are not limited to, ice cream socials, disaster preparedness, games, contests, discussing neighborhood issues, discuss or plan a Neighborhood Watch Program. It is an opportunity to be creative, have fun and celebrate your neighborhood.
