National Night Out Observance - Oliver Center

Every year I try to observe the National Night Out. This year the Oliver Senior Citizens Center had something on the calendar, but I have no idea what.

I'm a member of the Oliver Senior Citizen Center, but I rarely go there.  I paid my dues this year at the John Booth-Eleanor Hooper Senior Center and the day that I paid my dues was the only day that I have been there.  I support our local senior centers as much as I can, but I rarely participate.  I'm just too busy. 

The Oliver Center is directly across the street from the Mary Harvin Center which was destroyed by arson on the evening of the riot.  I still have no idea why the idiot burned down the place and I do not know if they have found out who did it.  I am glad that they caught the person who set the CVS store on fire, but I was extremely disappointed at the slap on the wrist he received. 

The CVS store served thousands of people in the area.  Many used the store to purchase their needed medication, groceries, and other necessary items.  The arson hurt the people in the area much more than Corporate America.  Thank God that CVS is rebuilding.  To me this shows the commitment of Corporate America to serve all people.  Of course, their main goal is to make money, but they don't care whether the money is from whites or blacks.
