Willowbend Celebrates National Night Out!

EVERY FIRST TUESDAY IN OCTOBER, Willowbend participates in National Night Out. This is a community-building event we hold every year. Its purpose is to promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. Willowbend is constantly striving to protect its reputation as a safe, comfortable place in which to live, work, and play, and this special night is one of our most effective tools for doing that.

THIS IS OUR MISSION:

This is why everyone gets involved: People who know each other will watch out for each other. That’s why each year at National Night Out, Willowbend joins millions of folks across the country and does something pretty radical: we turn off the TV and come outside to visit our neighbors. Drive around the neighborhood and you are sure to see a party .

How do we celebrate? Some folks serve food. Some serve drinks. Some just set up chairs and camp out. A number of folks generously offer to host. Hosting’s not hard to do, and it’s lots of fun as well! For those who don’t host, they can just drop by, draw up a seat and visit. Our Security Patrol drops by some of the parties (as time allows) and will chat and answer questions. This is a good time to meet and greet the Patrol, and get some of your questions answered. Consider this your invitation to sign up in the Fall to be a party host for one of these gatherings. Watch your front door for your September Willowbend Newsletter, where you’ll find important details about how to participate!
