Register for National Night Out
The City of Cedar Rapids is asking its citizens to turn on their porch lights and spend time in their neighborhoods to celebrate National Night Out on Tuesday, August 6, 2013. National Night Out is in its 30th year with Cedar Rapids participating for the last 14 years.
It is important for neighborhoods to connect and National Night Out is a simple way to do this. We encourage neighbors to host an event between the hours of 6:00 – 9:00 pm. It can be in a driveway, yard or neighborhood community building such as a school or church. Each neighborhood can host a unique get-together. Neighbors can have a desert night or barbeque. It can be more elaborate with music and children’s activities. We encourage neighborhoods to be creative.
To register your event so that police and fire fighters can stop by and meet your neighborhoods, contact Sgt. Mark Andries at 319-286-5438 or firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>. List the address and time the event will be held, the name and phone number of the contact person for the event.
Look for an update of events as the National Night Out gets closer!
