Tuesday August 4, 2009 ,will be "National Night Out, New Hope's Night to Unite." New Hope has participated in National Night Out for many years. Each year we see more participation by neighborhoods. This year we also want to recognize the new state initiative Night to Unite, so we have come up with a unique title that fits both. Neighborhoods will be encouraged to host events on their block. The police, fire, and public works department; cIty council and mayor; ambulance service; and McGruff the Crime Dog will visit neighborhoods and encourage continued participation and partnership in crime prevention activities throughout the year. Neighborhoods will be able to participate in a food and school supply drive to support local charities and schools that serve familes in need in our community. All residents are encourage to participate.
Organizers who submit their completed registration by July 1, 2009, will be eligible to receive picnic packs for their event. The packs include picnic supplies as well as any donated items we receive from the business community.
Neighborhoods that wish to block off their street for a block party must turn in their completed paperwork by July 21, 2009, so barricades can be ordered.
Businesses and community organizations are encouraged to participate by sharing information with their staff and customers. Businesses with sign boards stating, "Sign up Now for National Night Out, New Hope's Night to Unite" can display them any time from June 1-July 15.
