Flower Mound: National Night Out
Opportunity to Bond with Neighbors, Prevent Crime
National Night Out is a nationwide initiative encouraging residents to turn their porch lights on and organize block parties, sending a message to criminals that our neighborhoods are fighting back. By strengthening neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and heightening crime and drug prevention awareness, National Night Out unites residents to “Give Neighborhood Crime and Drugs a Going Away Party.”
Neighborhoods that organize National Night Out Block Parties from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. on October 1 will be eligible to compete for the annual Flower Mound Neighborhood of the Year award. The winning neighborhood will receive a street sign proclaiming the neighborhood as the 2013 National Night Out Neighborhood of the Year. Registered block parties could receive visits from members of the Town Council, the Flower Mound Police Department, Fire Trucks, the Fire Department Clowns, and McGruff the Crime Dog. Street barricades will be provided to registered block parties upon request.
