    Office Of The Mayor
    Dear Friends:

    This week I will be participating in the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado. I look forward to representing New Haven at this important event and to using this opportunity to exchange ideas with leaders from across the nation. You can keep up to date with what I’m seeing and hearing in Denver by checking out my daily diary entries in the New Haven Register. Is there something you’d like to know about my experience in Denver? If so, please e-mail mmm@newhavenct.net with your questions.

    While I’m in Denver, there’s still plenty happening in New Haven:

    Holiday Hill

    Today, the Office of Elderly Services is taking hundreds of New Haven seniors to Holiday Hill for its 24th Annual Senior Outing. Seniors from throughout the region have also been invited to share in today’s festivities.

    Mentoring & Getting Involved in your Neighborhood

    In the last several weeks we’ve talked a great deal about the need for residents of our community to get involved whether it be as mentors to young people, advocates for safer streets or as a neighbor doing you part to keep your neighborhood safe and welcoming. If you’re interested in learning more about New Haven Mentors, a program where adults can serve as mentors and classroom volunteers in New Haven Public Schools, please contact Adriana Arreola at 946-2394. Mentors must complete an application process and successfully undergo a background check before being placed in a school.

    Another way to get involved is to attend monthly management team meetings and to join or create a block watch. For more information on Block Watches please contact Officer Joseph Avery at 946-5915. The following is a list of Management Team Meetings throughout the City:

    Downtown: 3rd Tuesday of every month at 6 p.m. City Hall

    Westville: 3rd Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. Substation

    Back to School

    New Haven Public Schools open next week on Thursday, September 4. On that first day of school, Troup School and Columbus Family Academy will reopen as state-of –the-art centers for learning and excellence as part of our Citywide School Construction Program.

    Labor Day Weekend

    Make this Labor Day Weekend a safe and healthy one! Remember that New Haven Police are dedicated to keeping our streets safe! Officers will be looking to make sure that you’re wearing your seatbelt and that you’re not driving while under the influence.

    Have a happy and healthy week!

    Very truly yours,

    John DeStefano, Jr.
