Save the Date: National Night Out, Tuesday, August 3rd
Plan now for your neighborhood party! Let’s all pitch in, meet our neighbors, organize picnics and barbecues, and have some fun!

National Night Out is an annual event designed to strengthen communities by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local law enforcement partners. The goal is to heighten crime-prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs, and most importantly, send a message that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. It’s also the perfect opportunity for neighbors to get to know each other even better. National Night Out occurs every year on the first Tuesday of August. Nationalnightout.org

Please contact RRCO is you would like more information or help in organizing your block party.

If you need a ride to the meeting, please let us know.
