National Night Out is an annual event taking place the first Tuesday in August throughout the United States. The Westview Community Organization held this year’s National Night Out in the southern part of Westview on a strip of land that will hopefully be turned into an official park in the future. The youth played a basketball tournament and police, firefighters, politicians, and neighbors chatted for this evening of public safety.
