National Night Out Block Party August 7, 2018

Join us on the 200 block of College Ave. for our annual National Night Out block party. We will have food, kids games, prizes, and more!

August 7, 2018

5:00 PM – 8:00 PM

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.

We will have planned programs to celebrate National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day.

The events inlude a “get-the-wiggles out” warm-up song, a reading of the book “The Way I Feel,” by Janan Cain and a lesson that includes “thumbs-up choices” that children can use when they are mad (including “hot cocoa breathing”, a preschool technique for teaching deep breathing; and “heavy work activities” such as pushing against the floor or holding up the wall to release tension).  The session concludes with a craft and an optional snack provided by some of the libraries. Mental health/wellness information and home activities will also be available at each site for families to take with them as well.
