National Night Out
August 4, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - August 5, 2015 @ 12:00 am EDT
Join your neighbors for food, school supplies, an art show and more as we unite against crime in the community!
The Grill Masters from the 1600 Block of South Olympian Way and crew will be cooking!
Free food and drinks are being served and this is a potluck event. To ensure all may partake bring your own special dish to share! All items are welcome: ice, drinks, chips, buns, hot dogs, burgers (meat or veggie), cups, plates, napkins, utensils, coal, or lighter fluid. We will have a veggie grill or two going too! If you don’t care to cook and want to share items to be cooked, that works too!
Additional activities include a talent show featuring participants from the 2015 Westview STEAM Empowerment Camp and you are invited to perform too.
Acknowledgments of those community heroes who have made the camp successful for a third straight year will be a highlight of the festivities. T-shirts and other art items will be auctioned off with proceeds going to next year’s camp or other youth driven activities.
School supplies and back packs will given out while they last. Please donate any supplies to fill those book back packs.
To be a part of the Host team please contact Bruce Williams at 404-447-5804.
National Night Out, ‘America’s Night Out Against Crime,’ was introduced by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) in 1984 to prevent crime, drugs and violence in cities across America. That first year, 400 communities in 23 states participated in National Night Out. Nationwide, 2.5 million Americans took part in 1984. National Night Out now involves over 37 million people and 15,000 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.
National Night Out is designed to:
- Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
- Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;
- Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
- Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
