National Night Out: Aug. 6
This August, as part of the National Night Out event, residents from roughly 15,000 communities nationwide will join together to send a message to criminals that they are organized and fighting back against crime.
On that night, Wentzville residents are invited to turn on their porch lights, go outside and join with neighbors in block parties, cookouts, flash-light walks and other activities. Making a point to meet and get to know your neighbors can take a big step toward combating crime.
This year, National Night Out will be celebrated on Tuesday, Aug. 6, from 6 to 9 p.m. During that time, City officials, along with representatives from the Wentzville Police Department and Wentzville Fire Protection District will circulate throughout the community visiting neighborhood National Night Out celebrations. If your neighborhood would like to request a visit from elected officials or if you need more information or suggestions about how to plan your own National Night Out activities, please call Officer Mainieri at (636) 639-2171.
