The Townsend Police Department, is pleased to announce that the department is hosting National Night Out on August 1, 2017 from 6-8 at the library, 12 Dudley Road, in meeting rooms A & B and in a section of the parking lot.
This free event is part of a “national community-building campaign that promotes police- community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live”.
The response has been extremely positive. With over 30 participating entities, there is something for everyone. NM Cares is helping with games, Recreation is coordinating arts and crafts, and there will face painting, Charlotte’s Web Memorabilia, a live animal display, gymnastics demonstrations, entertainment by the Shriners Clown Unit, car seat and bike helmet information, popcorn by Kids Country Playground, and the opportunity to meet State Police and a K9 from Littleton Police. Many town departments, non-profits and local businesses are coming to spread the word about the services they offer. “I have been receiving calls every day with offers to participate which is terrific, it makes it a true community event, and something we couldn’t do without this group effort” said Chief Rick Bailey.
“I encourage everyone in town to come to the town’s 1st National Night Out to enjoy the activities, interact with those setting up informational booths, and talk with their neighbors.”
