The third reason to attend next Tuesday’s National Night Out – great food! The Boy Scouts will be grilling hot dogs for sale, and we’ll have snacks and soft drinks. There will be also someone giving away FREE snow-cones and popcorns. It should be a great evening and a great chance to meet your neighbors and get to know your local police officers!

More than 16,000 communities across the country will host National Night Out events on Tuesday, Aug. 3, hoping to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie, and send a message to criminals letting them know that their neighborhoods are organized and are fighting back. In north College Park, National Night Out will take place at Duvall Field from 7 pm to 8:30 pm.
