What’s this all about? The National Night Out website (https://natw.org ) describes it’s purpose as:
“National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. Together, we are making that happen.
National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Neighborhoods across the nation host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel and exhibits.”
This event is partnership between Forest City Police, Fire, Ambulance, Paramedics, Forest City Economic Development, Chamber of Commerce, and Grow Forest City and is sponsored by several local businesses.
Join the Forest City community on August 4th, 6-9pm in downtown Forest City!
