Night Out Against Crime a big hit with neighbors

About 200 neighbors gathered at the Richland Park picnic shelter on Tuesday night to celebrate the Sylvan Park Neighborhood Association's official Night Out Against Crime event with a potluck dinner. Metro Fire Department, Metro Nashville Police Department and emergency response personnel stopped by to say hello over the course of the evening, and those in attendance were quick to thank them for their efforts to keep Sylvan Park and the rest of Nashville safe. State Senator Douglas Henry also braved the heat to meet with neighbors. Thanks to Margaret Holleman, Doug Eckert and many others who volunteered to make the night a great success. See you next time.


  1. My wife and I are new to Nashville and we came along to meet some folks and share some food.

    While there, we found out that we don't actually live in the Sylvan Park neighborhood after all (we're just a block out), but this was a great event; thanks for having us out!

  2. I'm glad you and your wife were able to come. You are welcome anytime, whether you live in Sylvan Park or just nearby. Welcome to Nashville!
