Tuesday, August 5, the Tewksbury Police Department join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the “31st Annual
National Night Out” crime and drug prevention event. National Night Out, which
is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, will involve more than 15,000
communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military
bases around the world. In all, over 37 million people are expected to
participate in “America’s Night Out Against Crime.”
One of the goals of NNO is to strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. The Tewksbury Police Department, in partnership with the Tewksbury Senior Center and the Tewksbury Library, will be hosting a FREE “Family Fun Night” starting at 4:30 p.m. There will be a classic car show and free cookout thanks to the Blair House. The Police Department will be giving out child ID kits, temporary tattoos, the movie “Rio 2” on a big screen, and more. If you are planning on coming for the movie portion only, please try to arrive by 6 p.m. so you can get your refreshments and seats. The movie will start at approximately 6:15 p.m.
This FREE family night was made possible not only by the people mentioned above, but also by the generous donations of local businesses such as Big Top Party Rental, Walmart, Merrimack Valley Pavilion, Altitude in Billerica, Enterprise Bank, Hannaford, Tewksbury Credit Union, Community Teamwork Inc., and Lowell General Hospital.
