National Night Out – Tuesday, August 6th

Night Out

Stop by the Grandin Village to shop, have dinner or relax on a bench and meet your neighbors followed by a coordinated effort to ‘Light up the night’ by residents turning their porch lights on.  From 6PM to 9PM in the Grandin Village.  Leave your porch lights on until midnight.

The introduction of National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime”, in 1984 began an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. NATW’s National Night Out program culminates annually, on the first Tuesday of August.

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.  The traditional “lights on” campaign and symbolic front porch vigils turned into a celebration across America with various events and activities.
