National Night Out is Tuesday, October 4 from 6-8pm in West Austin Park (1317 W 10th St). This is a family celebration held by neighborhoods across the country to promote community and relationships with our city’s public safety personnel. I have registered our event both nationally and locally and requested a visit from the Austin Fire Department. We have been fortunate to have members of Engine 4 with us each year. Fire Station 4 is the oldest operating fire station in the Austin Fire Department and the only operations fire station that dates back to the horse drawn era of firefighting in Austin.
People are invited to bring a Pot Luck dish or, alternatively, I have emailed Whole Foods hoping that their Food Truck will sell food (and waive their fee) again this year — as folks have requested.
Also, the public is invited to the National Night Out Kick-Off Event on Saturday October 1, 2016 from 10am–1pm at the Mueller Airport Lake, (4550 Mueller Blvd).
So, everyone please put your porch lights on and stop by to say ‘Hello’ and pass this on to anyone in the ‘hood to join.
