I received this note this morning via email from the director of Leap Academy Charter school in Camden (please spread the word and most importantly, SAFE out there!)
Attention all partners, teachers and staff,
There is a potential for violent Mischief Night activities in Camden. In order to ensure that children are out of harm’s way, the 21st Century After School Program is canceled for today.
Let's not forget a few years ago on Mischief night when people started putting houses on fire all over Camden, causing several causalities and many injuries across the city. Be careful and smart. Better yet, stay inside your house and out of harm's way.
PS Congratulations to the Philadelphia Phillies for winning the 2008 World Series!
Camden man from Ablett Village is arrested for murder (same neighborhood where most of the boys at Steve's Club are from...indeed, a very tough place to grow up...but no doubt in mind that these kids will rise above it all and go on to achieve great things. (click on link)
