Some 50+ residents, old and young, gathered last Tuesday at the Duvall Field to mark the yearly National Night Out 2010.

Some picked up safety related literature brought by the local neighborhood watch group as they listened to the talks on neighborhood safety from the city’s (contract) police officers and neighborhood watch coordinator Kim Lugo. The kids enjoyed ice cream and cookies and checked out fire trucks brought by the Branchville Voluntary Fire Department (BVFD) volunteers. Others took a look at the ameature (ham) radio equipments brought by the former council member David Milligan and his fellow volunteers. There were also members of Boys and Girls Scout present at the event.

Mayor Andy Fellows and council members Partrick and Chris were there to welcome the residents. The College Park Patch editor Lauren Evan was also there to cover the event. Please read her story here (Thank you Lauren).
