National Night Out Follow-Up

Our group was small but mighty as we walked the Boylan Heights neighborhood last evening for the National Night Out. When we arrived at the Project Enlightenment playground we had some discussion (over ice cream) about house and neighborhood security and the importance of reporting any suspicious activity. Early intervention and immediate response are key to stopping crime in its tracks.

The drawing prize went to Adam Zaytoun – a $25 gift certificate to Lowe’s Home Improvement store. (We understand he may have some expenditures coming up with his new old house.) All it took was for him to proudly display his Community Watch sign on his property.

We couldn’t help but notice that there were no children at this event. We would like some constructive feedback about this event that will make it more appealing to neighbors, especially families with children: Format? Timing? Relevance? Other? Everyone’s input is appreciated.

Stay safe.

Boylan Heights to Celebrate National Night Out

Our neighborhood will join thousands of communities across the nation on Tuesday, August 4th to promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood unity at the annual National Night Out. Continuing our tradition, we invite you to a neighborhood walk and ice cream social to meet and greet neighbors. The walk will begin at 7:00 pm and we will wind through the neighborhood gathering up residents as we pass (the vicinity of) your house. Further details on the route are coming to the website. We will arrive at the Project Enlightenment playground and have free ice cream from 7:45 to 8:15 pm. Come out and join in the fun! To promote neighborhood safety and unity we encourage you to purchase a Neighborhood Watch sign to display on your house. During the month of July we are offering a special price of $10 per sign, plus free installation. Each house displaying the sign as of July 31st will be entered into a drawing for a stunning prize to be awarded at the NNO ice cream social. Get in the action, today!
