While we were able to plan and implement successful National Night Out block parties the last two years, we have less volunteer participation this year and are therefore behind in our planning process. The LNA board has discussed these realities and decided not to pursue a large-scale block party this year.
The opportunity for Lavaca to celebrate NNO on Tuesday, October 1, 2013, is definitely still there, just on a smaller scale. Perhaps there are neighbors willing to organize a casual potluck gathering like we have done in the past? Or organize small parties geared towards getting to know the neighbors who live in your immediate vicinity? Either way, the LNA will support any such gatherings and continue to promote NNO as an excellent opportunity for neighbors to visit with each other and leave porch lights on in an effort to raise awareness about crime prevention and build neighborhood camaraderie.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to host a small NNO gathering this year. We need YOUR participation!
