Night Out Against Crime next Tuesday (August 5)

Sylvan Park’s biggest annual neighborhood event, our Night Out Against Crime, will take place next Tuesday, August 5, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Richland Park picnic shelter.

This year we'll be holding a neighborhood-wide pot-luck dinner. Please bring a dish to feed six to eight people, depending upon the first letter of your last name (see below). SPNA will provide cold drinks. Dinner will be served beginning at 6:30 p.m. See you there!
Last Name Begins With:
A - F, please bring a salad
G - M, please bring a main dish
N - R, please bring a side dish
S - Z, please bring dessert
This national celebration is organized to thwart crime by building stronger neighborhoods and fostering partnerships between communities and local police. Our neighborhood depends on a strong partnership with our public safety personnel, and we look forward each year to the opportunity to tell them so. This is another great opportunity to visit with neighbors and to get to know each other. Come celebrate and say, “Thanks for all you do!”
