On Tuesday, August 6, the Panhandle National Night Out will join the rest of our country in recognizing and celebrating the relationship enjoyed between communities and law enforcement agencies. This event is an annual occurrence, the 30th since its inception, in which over 37 million people participate and promote awareness of the role law enforcement has in our communities and encourage cooperation from our residents to help prevent crime in our area.
This special event will be held from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm during the regularly scheduled “Music in the Park” in Howard City. The Howard City Police Department and Fire Department, the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Department, Michigan State Police, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, and the Montcalm County Neighborhood Watch will be present to offer information pertaining to crime prevention, drug awareness, and assistance in creating a safer neighborhood. Free food, door prizes, and great music performed by the Blue Water Ramblers will be provided. Further information will become available as the date of the event gets nearer.
Anyone interested in assisting us with this valuable and worthwhile event or in helping during the evening on Tuesday, August 6th, is encouraged to contact Robert Richards at 231-937-7837 or you can email the Montcalm County Neighborhood Watch at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be included.
