Yorktown had their first National Night Out on Oct. 1 with nearly 200 people in attendance.
The National Night Out is a community-police awareness-raising event to increase awareness about police programs in communities, such as drug prevention, town watch, neighborhood watch, and other anti-crime efforts.
The Yorktown Fire Department, Yorktown Police Department and Yorktown Chamber of Commerce held a community party in the City Park from 5 to 8 p.m. with an evening of games, food, and music.
Mayor Rene Hernandez said, “I applaud our Chamber of Commerce, Lion’s Club, and many others that gave their time to make National Night Out a success. It really did well. It brought the community together for this event. I believe the 2014 National Night Out will be a much bigger success.”
