MY SILVER CREEK
Keep it Safe
My Silver Creek is a site built with our neighbourhood in mind, especially regarding our Neighbourhood Watch Program and safety in general. Here, you are welcome anytime. You can leave your comments if you wish, and I will always welcome them. Or, just make yourself comfortable and simply enjoy the visit. It is your place, a place in constant change, and so is life. Please visit every now and then to check for new things.
This neighbour of yours hopes you will find some useful information here.
Enjoy the visit! Please come back soon!
I'd like to use these lines as my way to say a big thank you to the entire staff at Safe City Mississauga (formerly MCPA) for their work towards a safe city. Especially, my gratitude to Ian Cunningham, Grant Clark, Ashley Lyons and Hugh MacLellan, for their support and availability regarding our Neighbourhood Watch Program.
A special and heartfelt thank you to Cst. Sean Piper - Peel Regional Police / Crime Prevention Services, for his always-prompt assistance and expertise in matters related to safety in our complex and from whom I've learned much. His professionalism, patience and support were priceless at all times. Without him there wouldn't be a Watch Program in our neighbourhood.
A token of appreciation goes also to Paul Gross and Marcelo Calbucci from Sampa for their technical support to build the first 'My Silver Creek'. For three years Sampa was the home for this website/blog and I will never be able to thank them enough for their support.
