  1. I am a parent of two happy young boys. My husband and I are thrilled with Ferguson taking time to support the youth. We must invest in the young men and women of our community. Many of the youth are motivated, focused and positive and this organization is proof. Looking forward to our sons being involved in this mission in the future.

  2. Hello I am Amy Sirtak, I am emailing you to introduce you to the Positive Ticketing Program which has reduced crime by as much as 50% in communities throughout Canada.

    This program involves rewarding young people for positive behavior as it builds relationships between the police and young people in our community. Rev. Larry rice asked to email you and invite you to a special meeting with the founder of this program, Ward Clapham. Ward will be in Saint Louis Thursday, December 18, 2014. Those attending will be given a manual Ward has written on starting a positive Ticketing Program in your Community.

    Attached is a flyer that will give you some basic information about the Positive Ticketing Program as well as the times and locations for an overview of the program presented by Ward Clapham, the creator of this program.

    We sincerely hope that you can join us for one of these meetings. These meetings are open to anyone who is interested in attending and free to attend. Please let us know which meeting you are planning to attend so that we can prepare informational packets to have for everyone attending.

    Your Servant in Christ,
    Amy Sirtak
