What’s the History of Blockwatch in West Seattle? Are you part of the history? Do you know part of the history?
We decided to focus our January meeting of the West Seattle Blockwatch Captains’ Network on the history of Blockwatch in West Seattle, and our guest speaker will be retiring SPD Crime Prevention Coordinator, Benjamin Kinlow. With over 30 years of experience, we hope he will regale us with his stories of how things used to be, how they have evolved and some of the highlights and key takeaways of his career.
We invite everyone in West Seattle (even if you aren’t a Blockwatch Captain) to come say goodbye to Benjamin, hear about the history of Blockwatch and bring your Blockwatch-related stories to share — especially if you have stories relating to working with Benjamin and how he has helped you with your Blockwatch. It would be great to send him off to retirement with a few memories he might have forgotten!
We are also trying to round up historical memorabilia and/or photos of Blockwatch history in West Seattle that we could scan to use in a slide show; if you have something, please get in touch! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 206-424-0040.
