Last Friday, I had the privilege of attending the 4th annual Community Guardian Awards Celebration hosted by the Adhoc Group Against Crime.

This was a wonderful opportunity for Kansas City to gather and recognize those who serve as great ambassadors in our community. The more than 100 individuals gathered at the Intercontinental Hotel on the Plaza also celebrated and honored Alvin Brooks on his birthday.
