Pokémon Go was recently released in the U.S. and as you have probably heard, it is a game you can play on your phone. We have received numerous questions about this augmented reality game app and the dangers associated with children playing it. As a result we decided to review it as part of our Social Media 101 for Parents episodes. Remember this is a game not a social media platform so watch the video where we explain how it works and our opinion on possible dangers. Please share the video with your friends and family.
Watch our other videos in the Social Media 101 Series. This one explains the dangers of Snapchat www.facebook.com/CityofMiamiPoliceDepartment/videos/1098302166926992/

Received the minutes and meeting schedule ......I have no idea who volunteered for hospitality on 7/20. But I did it at the June meeting.
Also our condo summer party is in my backyard on the 20th so I will need to be excused from the KYA meeting. thanks
Jacklyn Ferris KruyneThank you Kathryn S. Garvey and Betsey Byrne Gregoire!!! I have heard so much about this game with in the last few days. There have been "fake" reports regarding Pokemon Go but the above is true. Crazy to think that playing a game on your cell phone while walking is a good idea >:( Also, kids in CF might remember the Accent on Youth skit (performed by the HS AOY group) about texting and walking!
Thank you to all the helpers this morning: Sally and Tom Florkiewicz, Dick Shanklin, Bob and Jo Royer, Louise Brick, Jennifer Stearns Condon, Mary Condon, Alex Hamerstone, Mayor Bill Tomko and Jacob English.
