National Night Out – Tuesday, October 4, 2011 You pick your party timeframe – anytime after work and into the evening. Deadline to apply with city & request an emergency responder is SEPTEMBER 16, 2011 (application available).
Neighbors: We had several National Night Out parties last year and they were really successful. Let’s do it again this year and I invite even more people to host one. It does not take a lot of effort. You can make it as simple as inviting a few people over and having lemonade or grilling with a big group. Even better, team up with a neighbor and co-host one. Easier and the more the merrier.If you are planning a “party”, would you email me your name and address?
We can circulate the location & times of the parties to get the neighbors out and meet one another. If you can’t host a party, please drop by one being held & say hello. Westcreek needs you!

p.s. The more people know their neighbors, the lower the crime statistics in their area…Free crime prevention!
