National Night Out is Tuesday, August 5th. If your block has not yet planned something, there’s still time. If you haven’t heard of or participated in NNO, here’s some information to get you started.
I live near 23rd and Jackson and several blocks/block groups around here do a get-together. Most are casual potluck bbqs. The city lets you shut down the street as long as you register. Sometimes the fire fighters stop by to say hi to the kids. This is a good way to get to know neighbors and it’s more fun than a normal block watch meeting.
