Watch group will take its place in history
THE former Casino Neighbourhood Watch group will soon take its place in history when its archives are submitted to the Casino Folk Museum.
Former area co-ordinator Donna Maria Adams, former president Peter Adams and former vice-president Steve Dick will compile a formal tribute to the Casino communities for their work.
"(It was) hard and successful voluntary work towards community crime prevention and support to the police force for the period of time starting August 2008 to February 2013," Ms Adams said.
The Casino Neighbourhood Watch was closed by the Richmond Local Area Command and replaced with the Eyewatch initiative.
The history will consist of photographs of events and achievements and also a written documentary.
Any people who contributed to the Casino Neighbourhood Watch program who prefer to remain anonymous and do not wish their names or photographs to appear in this history are asked to write with details to Donna Maria Adams at 85 Hotham St, Casino.
Street banners, meeting banners, shirts, caps, badges, stickers and stationery with sponsored Aboriginal art borders will also be displayed at the museum.
Richmond Local Area Command recently responded to Ms Adams' request for recognition of the Casino Neighbourhood Watch committee members by providing a certificate of appreciation for display in the museum.
Each of the committee members from that period will also receive a certificate for their contribution.
