National Night Out — Tuesday 8/1!
National Night Out is observed the first Tuesday evening in August annually. This year’s NNO is Tuesday, August 1st. A national tradition celebrated across the US and Canada since 1984, National Night Out was created to increase awareness about police programs in communities by the National Association of Town Watch. Events can range from small back yard BBQs to block parties and to full-scale festivals. The National Night Out website says, “Together we are making our communities safer, more caring places to live.”
