PGCA Community Meeting Leads to Progress in the Fight Against Cluster Mailbox Break-ins.

After listening to neighbors concerns regarding cluster mailbox break-ins, the PGCA put together a community meeting that was held in conjunction with Gabriela Herrera from Congressmember Matsui’s Office.  As a result of the meeting the cluster mailboxes that were recently broken into with an illegal master key will have their locks replaced. Here is a list of streets that had cluster mailboxes broken into with an illegal master key and have now had their locks replaced:

  • 7700 West Shore Dr
  • 699 Coriander Way
  • 7605 Pocket Rd
  • 26 Axios Court
  • 7465 Pocket rd.
  • 7005 Warbler Way
  • 7605 Pocket Rd.
  • 7800 River Village Drive
  • 20 Pebble River Circle
  • 267 Brewster Avenue
  • 60 Portinao Circle
  • 300 Portinao Circle
  • 231 Portinao Circle

The PGCA also put together a community meeting in 2018 to make sure neighbors would have their old style cluster mailboxes replaced with them more secure F-series after a break-in.

Think Local | Shop Local | Dine Local

We’ve been proud to partner with Councilmember Rick Jennings, II to encourage neighbors to “Think Local” when deciding where to shop and dine. Will and Devin just finished hanging and distributing signs today! (With the help of Will’s son Liam) After distributing the last few signs at local #PocketGreenhaven businesses, naturally they took the time to support a couple of them with #PocketPride!

We are able to do so by listening to what our members have to share with us about their health history, as well as their current fitness level. These are things that we take very seriously. We always look to create a dynamic workout that will push our members to their absolute best, while also taking into account any injuries or limitations that they may have. There is a place for all fitness and skill levels in 9Round.
