Join Laura Morask, Maine Township Trustee, for National Night Out Against Crime next Tuesday, August 5th at Dee Park. The National Night Out promotes “family fun and neighborhood unity” while also educating “residents on crime prevention and safety. We ask that you turn your front porch light on between 7 and 10 pm on August 5th to show you support for Maine Township’s National Night Out Against Crime.
A Bit of History: The National Night Out Against Crime began in 1984 as “an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.” Over the past 30 years, National Night Out Against Crime has expanded with 37.8 million people getting involved each year in 16,124 communities. The event traditionally takes place on the first Tuesday evening in August. Check out the National Night Out website, Facebook page, and Press Release for this year’s events.
We encourage you to stop by the Maine Township event at Dee Park. We look forward to seeing you there!
