Update: National Night Out has been postponed to do the chance of strong storms on the evening of August 7. Stay tuned to find out the new date once it is determined.
One of the best ways to fight back against crime and make your neighborhood safer is by getting to know your neighbors and the officers who patrol the neighborhood. National Night Out is a nationwide event that aims to do just that—and Forest Park Southeast will be having our very own neighborhood event on August 7th! The Forest Park Southeast Neighborhood Association, Park Central Development, and the Washington University Medical Center Redevelopment Corporation have partnered to put this event together for the neighborhood, and we hope to see all of you there, even if you can only stop by for a little while!
When: August 7, 2018, 6:00 p.m. til dusk
Where: Chouteau Park (click here for a map)
What: Food, beverages, neighborhood patrol officers, St. Louis Fire Department, kickball, and giveaways!
About National Night Out
From the NNO website:
“National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August (Texas celebrates on the first Tuesday in October). Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.”
Our event in Chouteau Park will be our neighborhood’s official national night out event. Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, and come join us in promoting a safer FPSE community!
