National Night Out Pairs Police & Community

FREMONT – The National Night Out will mark it’s 35th annual celebration this year, and Fremont will once again take part in the festivities.

National Night Out began in 1984, with the simple action of neighbors  turning on their porch lights and sitting on front porches to visit with each other and the police who patrolled their neighborhood. Back then, the first National Night Out involved an estimated 2.5 million residents across 400 communities in 23 states. Since then, the National Night Out has evolved into a celebration of community-police partnerships, and in 2016, 38 million residents in 16,000 communities participated in the National Night Out festivities.

The Fremont Noon Kiwanis will host the Fremont event, coming up Tuesday, August 7th at John C Fremont Park from 6 to 8pm. Families and children are encouraged to come by and enjoy the festivities. Kids and their parents will have the opportunity to meet Fremont Police officers, Dodge County Sheriff’s deputies, State Patrol officers and area firefighters, tour cruisers and a firetruck, and reconnect with their neighbors in a fun filled atmosphere. Games and bounce houses will keep the little ones having fun while they learn about safety and community from their local law enforcement.

The event will take place rain or shine – if the weather turns wet, you’ll find the festivities inside the Lenihan gym inside the Fremont Public Schools facility next to the park.
