The next meeting of the Culpeper Combined Neighborhood Watch will be held at 6:30 p.m. tonight, Sept. 23 in the worship center at Culpeper Baptist Church, 318 S. West St.

Renowned local community servant and Culpeper Colonel Gladys Williams, longtime manager of the Culpeper Senior Center, will receive the Amazing Citizen Award for her contributions to making the world a better place. The County Board of Supervisors in 2012 named her among its Culpeper Colonels for serving local seniors.

Bringing all of the community together is a priority for neighborhood watch organizers from the Culpeper Police Department and its focus on being part of the community.
