National Night Out

Tuesday, Oct. 5, 6:30-9:00pm, Gazebo at KF Park

It’s time to gather your neighbors and join us in our night out against crime.  The WBNA will be serving up free hotdogs, sausage wraps, sodas, chips, fruit and veggies and door prizes.

We’ll have distinguished guests on hand, State Representative Mark Strama, law enforcement from the Travis County Sheriff’s Office, ESD #2 Fire Department, and the Wells Branch MUD.  There’s really no telling who will show up.  Both children and adults will have the opportunity to visit with first responders, receive information on Neighborhood Watch and other programs available to residents, and tour the fire safety house and fire truck that ESD #2 will have on hand.  Come find out what’s going on in our community and visit with local law enforcement officers about what you can do to help reduce the opportunities for crimes to occur.

National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for and participation in local anti-crime efforts, and to strengthen neighborhood spirit and law enforcement-community partnership.  But, its primary goal is to send a strong message to criminals to let them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

So, take a stand against crime.  Turn on your porch light and come join your friends and neighbors at the park for food and fellowship.  If you have a Neighborhood Watch group on your block (or even if you don’t) we’d like to encourage you to come eat dinner with us, listen to the speakers, and then return home to your street and gather with your neighbors over dessert to discuss how you can make your homes and our community safer.

We hope to see you there!

  1. I couldn’t find a place to make this known, so I will post it here and hope it finds it’s way to the correct place. Someone is stealing our newspaper.

    Unless the paper is picked up at 5:00am, it gets taken. This is really a pathetic thing to do considering our neighborhood isn’t low rent district (people can afford to buy their own) and the newspaper is the one source of information and link to the outside world (my parents don’t drive any more).

    If I catch them and I think I will start having camera ready, I will pursue it as theft. Just giving a heads up on that.

    Thank you,

    1. Thanks Heidi for letting us know. I’m forwarding your message to the Chair of the MUD Safety Committee. He actually lives down the street from your parents. Maybe he has some ideas. Watching for them, camera in hand sounds like a good one though. Have you called the Statesman and reported it? Perhaps they could make sure to put it on the porch?

    2. Heidi,

      Just wanted to check on y’all. Did you get the newspaper issue resolved? Please let me know. Thanks!
