** Tuesday, August 1, 2017 **
Neighbors across Tigard are making plans to gather on Tuesday, August 1, to give crime and drugs a “going-away party.” Together they will celebrate National Night Out 2017, a nationwide crime- and drug-prevention event.
The event is hosted on blocks and streets citywide, bringing together neighbors while making Tigard a safer community. The 2017 event marks the 15th year straight year that Tigard residents have participated.
Nationally more than 37 million people took part last year alone in more than 15,000 communities across the country. In Tigard and many other communities, National Night Out has grown into a community-building event that connects neighbors and makes their neighborhoods safer.
Do-It-Yourself on National Night Out
Neighborhoods in Tigard are encouraged to host a function that brings residents out of their homes and together onto the street.
Consider hosting a block party, cookout or an ice cream social. Be creative and do something that will be fun and celebratory.
