The Sisters welcomed neighbors and friends to the back patio for pizza, salad and ice cream on Tuesday night. About 70 people came and enjoyed dinner, face painting and wheel chair races. Sister Annie had a table display of braille machines and taught folks how to use them. Some of the kids also played basket ball while the adults chatted with the Sisters. Everyone had a good time and laughed a lot! Check out the pictures on our facebook page.

The “27th Annual National Night Out” (NNO), a unique crime/drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), was Tuesday, August 3, 2010. National Night Out campaign involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 15,000communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. In all, over 36 million people participated in National Night Out 2009.

NNO has proven to be an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in our fight for a safer nation. Plus, the benefits your community will derive from NNO will most certainly extend well beyond the one night.
