The Mountain Village Police Department and Village Court Apartments (VCA) are teaming up once again to host the ninth annual National Night Out Tuesday, August 3 from 5 to 8 p.m.
The entire community is invited to join their neighbors, police and fire department teams at the Village Court Apartments (415 Mountain Village Blvd.) for a free barbeque (hamburgers and hot dogs), ice cream social, corn hole, dunk tank, bouncy castle and tours of police cars, fire trucks and an ambulance.
“After taking last year off due to the pandemic, we are very excited to host National Night Out once again to honor our local first responders,” said VCA Property Manager Luke Adamson. “We can’t wait to see everyone out for a night of fun.”
National Night Out, a part of the National Association of Town Watch, involves over 38 million people in 16,000-plus communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. This well-known and celebrated annual event is an annual community-building campaign that helps promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.
Mountain Village Chief of Police Chris Broady said, “This is a night for the Town of Mountain Village and our neighboring communities to stand together to promote awareness, safety and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement in our quest for a safer community.”
