Brooklyn Redmond was chosen as First Place Winner in the Poster Contest at Port O’Connor’s Night Out Against Crime on October 1st. Shown with Brooklyn are (l to r) Organizer Leon Brown; Calhoun County Assistant District Attorney, Shannon Salyer; local artist Ginnie Lichac; and Justice of the Peace Precinct, Precinct 5, Nancy Pomykal. Second Place honors in the Poster Contest went to Melony Romo and Third Place, Kayla Resendiz.

Despite our Port O’Connor community resembling a lake, the rains ended, and our first ever Night Out Against Crime became a huge success.

On behalf of the portoconnorwatch.com, I want to give a special thank you to Sheriff George Aleman and his Deputies, Commissioner Kenneth Finster and the Commissioners Court, EMS Director Henry Barber, Port O’Connor Volunteer Fire Department and Firefighters, Superintendent Billy Wiggins, Principal Tiffany O’Donnell, Teacher Renee Hawes, PTO President Amber Walters, the Ladies Club, Pat Ekstrom and The Dolphin Talk, Joyce Rhyne.

One sign of our success was good food, neighbors chatting with one another, kids smiling and having fun. This happened because of those volunteers who graciously gave their time to help make this event a success. Volunteers like Virgil and Ursula Price, Barbara and Jimmy Crouch, Kathryn Windham, Gerald and Ginnie Lichac, Kelly Gee, Carl Ray, Bill Tigrett, Donnie Klesel, Debbie Michalek, Scott and Kelly Wheat.

portoconnorwatch.com is dedicated to the safety and security of our community. We will strive to build a lasting community partnership, educate our neighbors, and give crime the going away party it deserves. The success of our night out against crime could not have happened without the donors who gave to participate with our community. Our donors were Rhonda Singleton, Walmart; Phil and Barbara Salemi, Ace Hardware; Blane Evans, Utited Rentals; Kelly Fox, H. Fox & Co. Inc.; John Hribek, Speedy Stop; Jeremy Dyes, POC Ice For You; Virgil and Ursula Price; Kathryn Windham; Gerald Lichac; Ray and Sherry Roberds.

It is wonderful to have community involvement and neighbors who keep a watchful eye to make sure our community is safe. Our message was loud and clear that neighbors and businesses belong to the community of Port O’Connor, not to those intent on committing crime.
