The breakfast meeting provided a relaxed and informal environment and the following took place:

  •  All attendees introduced themselves and gave a brief description of their connection to Kirby Gate.
  • Neighbors and businesses listened to each others experiences within the local Kirby Gate business and neighborhood community.
  • Walter Wills presented new development updates in the area.
  • Three officers from the Memphis Police Department encouraged everyone to follow safety tips when shopping to deter crime.
  • Everyone listened as the neighborhood watch representative introduced himself with enthusiasm and encouraged everyone to make a note of his phone number and office hours.
  • Security One representatives provided current crime statistics with very few instances occurring at Kirby Gate.
