National Night Out – Tues, Oct 3rd

This year, National Night Out is Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017, from 6 to 9 pm

National Night Out is a great opportunity to strengthen our neighborhood spirit and police/community relationships. It is also a great chance to get to know your neighbors better and share contact info. in case you should ever need it!

National Night Out is designed to:
– Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
– Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community relations
– Let criminals know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back

So on Tues. Oct 3rd, please turn on your porch lights, lock your doors and spend the evening outside with your neighbors, police officers, firefighters and EMS paramedics.

If you plan to have a Block Party, let MNA know by registering here and we will help spread the word by sharing your Block Party details on the webpage and facebook.

Also register your party with the city to get EMS, Fire, Code and Police to stop by. Deadline is 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 15, 2017.

Need a Flyer for Your Block Party – Click MNA NNO Flyer.

Also consider printing out a few of the below “5’s Sheets” to help neighbors share contact information with each.
