An Event to Promote Police-Community Partnerships & Neighborhood Camaraderie
On Tuesday, August 7, Councilman Michael J. Correia (Ward 6) will host the 35thAnnual National Night Out Celebration at George J. West Park located at 1279 Chalkstone Avenue. The event runs from 5:00 pm until 8:00 pm and all are invited to attend.
National Night Out is a nationwide event that brings residents together with community leaders and public safety officials to build trusting relationships and bolster neighborhood pride.
”I invite all residents of Providence and the surrounding area to come and support this great cause,” said Councilman Michael Correia. “Getting to know our elected officials and public safety personnel is crucial to improving many of the quality of life issues that affect us daily. I especially encourage parents to bring their children and introduce them to our fire, police and emergency personnel, in case their assistance is ever needed.”
This year’s event also features music, a bounce house, a giant slide, complimentary food provided by Aramark-Sodexo, and more. In addition, Councilman Correia is also pleased to announce a backpack giveaway for the first 120 students who attend. The event is free, family friendly, and open to the public.
