Youth Violence

With all the various non-profit programs in Lynn and educational programs focusing on youth council, youth violence, gang preventions, drugs and alcohol, teen pregnancy, parenting class, etc. I'm not certain why Lynn still has such a bad reputation.  Our youth of today do not understand the fundamentals of life. Life is what you make of it; your decisions impact your life. So do the right thing and be different!!!  If you don't try to change things within yourself and your life then you cannot complain about your life. Before you join a gang, do some homework on the history of gangs. Life of a gangster...leads to either death or prison. You decide how you want to live your life. Dead or behind bars....something to think about. You have a choice. Stop the violence!!!

Highlands Coalition and Ward 3 Working Together

If you ever want to see what a group of committed individuals can accomplish, take a look at Goldfish Pond. Or visit a Highland's Coalition meeting, and you'll see that they are actively engaged in making their community a better place to live.

On May 10, SCI Lynn, the Highlands Coalition and the Ward 3 Neighborhood Association are sponsoring neighborhood cleanups, and you too, can get involved.

Whether you clean up in front of your house or business or join the groups at either the Ford or the Ingalls schools at 8:30 Saturday morning, don't just sit back and complain about the litter, graffitti, vandalism and crime. Feel good about taking action to make Lynn a better place to live. See attached flyer for more details.
