National Night Out is held the first Tuesday of August, and the neighborhood of Hollin Hall celebrated with food, games, music, and other activities. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. Neighborhoods participate across thousands of communities from all 50 states, United States territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.
The community enjoyed its night out at the Mount Vernon Park and Pool from 6-8 p.m. on Aug. 6th. The event was hosted by the Hollin Hall Village Citizens Association. Pizza was available to buy, many of the youngsters in attendance sported dyed hair and temporary glitter tattoos, provided by Let’s Make a Face, and the music was provided by Mary Bowers, Lynne White, and Friends.
