Legislator Scannell to Host 2012 National Night Out
(FREEPORT, NY) – Nassau County Legislators Joseph Scannell, Kevan Abrahams, Dave Denenberg and Freeport Mayor Andrew Hardwick – with many other local organizations – are hosting the 29th National Night Out Against Crime at Cow Meadow Park in Freeport on Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2012 from 6 – 9 p.m.
National Night Out is an annual event held in more than 11,000 communities nationwide to increase awareness of crime, gang activity and violence threatening our neighborhoods.
A few of the most important goals of this year’s National Night out in Freeport are to generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships; and forge a strong sense of community by establishing partnerships with youths, parents, government and law enforcement agencies to combat these threats – all while having fun!
Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with their local elected officials and police officers, and obtain information regarding many county and village services, businesses, banking and health services, community base organization awareness as well as counseling pertaining to youth-related issues. There will also be live music – a “Tribute to the 60s” by John Nittoli and Our Generation Band, various games, fun, and free food.
Hundreds of local residents turned out to support the Freeport community last year, and enjoyed a wonderful night out with family and friends. This year is expected to be just as exciting, as Legislator Scannell hopes to continue the success of National Night Out 2011. Festivities will commence rain or shine.
Additional contributors to this highly-anticipated event include the Nassau County Police Department, Freeport Police and Fire Departments, Health Plus/Amerigroup, Freeport Pride, Target, Freeport Neighborhood Watch, Applebee’s, Compare Foods, LI Cares, Bethpage Federal Credit Union and many more.
