Salem Police plan Kick Off party for National Night OutSalem-News.com
They want to encourage citizen participation.
(SALEM, Ore.) - The Salem Police Department Crime Prevention Unit announces its third annual National Night Out Kick-Off Party to be held Tuesday, July 21, 2008 at 6:30 p.m. in the City Hall atrium just outside the police department.
Salem residents are invited to attend to help boost community enthusiasm about hosting a neighborhood block party for National Night Out, which is Tuesday, August 4th 2009.
The Kick-Off Party will be the place for last minute block party planners to register their block party and get some party ideas from Party Depot and give-aways from Target Stores. Starbucks will also be present to provide refreshments.
Representatives of the Parks & Transportation Services Division will be present to confirm any street closure or park use permits. Those who have already registered their party with the Salem Police Department can pick up their commemorative t-shirt (while supplies last).
"Buckets of Fun" which contain games and ideas for having a summer neighborhood shindig will be part of a special raffle for those present. "Neighbors don't want to miss the main raffle prize," said Angie Hedrick of the Crime Prevention Unit.
"This year we are raffling off the Chief! Actually, the prize winner will have the Chief's very special National Night Out team visit their party," she added. Of course, McGruff the Crime Dog will be present to meet and greet kids!
National Night Out is an evening dedicated to bringing neighbors and police together to stand united against crime. 2009 marks the 26th anniversary of this nationwide celebration.
