By  | 

The 2012 Annual National Night Out will be this Tuesday, October 2, 2012.

The kickoff event for National Night Out was held September 15th at the Bryan Target store and was a great success.

Now it’s time to have your own block party.

All residents are encouraged to step outside on this evening, meet their neighbors and visit with local law enforcement officers, who will be stopping at neighborhood block parties throughout the evening upon request.

Block parties typically start after 5:00 pm and head into the evening hours.
