Turn on your porch or patio lights, and step outside for the 2021 National Night Out! 

While there are still many pandemic uncertainties ahead,  there's one thing we've all learned:  With a little caution and lots of creativity - we can accomplish almost anything, together!  National Night Out is about building community;  making our neighborhoods safer by getting to know our neighbors and  neighborhood partners.

Learn more about National Night Out and how it got started more than 30 years ago!

Considering a National Night Out event in your neighborhood?  Even with many people vaccinated, it's still a good idea to consider events that naturally offer a little social distancing, so all of your neighbors feel safe and welcome.
