Texas’s National Night Out was held Tuesday, Oct 7 and the new NNO Committee did not disappoint.
The introduction of National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime”, in 1984 began an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. This message came through loud and clear in the parking lot of the Silvercreek pool/tennis court complex.
Sponsored by Target Silverlake, who provided volunteers, food, drinks and fun, over 350 residents came out to enjoy the fun. Other sponsors included Games2U, Sam’s Club, Keller Williams, Killum Pest Control, A&A Cleaning Services, Big Star Ford, Papa John’s, Frost Bank, Mighty Bounce Moonwalks, AT&T, Associa Management and Neighbors Emergency Centers.
DJ Damon D kept the music bumping while the crowd investigated a Manvel fire truck, brought by Manvel Fire Chief Steve DelBello, chatted with Lt. P.J. Trotta of Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office, took a look at a Pearland EMS vehicle, a Pearland Fire Department fire truck and checked out a Pearland Police Department truck that was confiscated from a local meth dealer, driven by Officer Daniel Hamminga.
The National Night Out Committee would like to thank Kevin Simmons with Target Silverlake for making the party phenomenal! And Silvercreek would like to thank National Night Out Committee Chair Gloria Dearth for working so hard to coordinate things to pull this bash off! You rock, Gloria! Thanks to NNO Committee members Melissa Henry and Andrew Pikoff, too! Great job, guys!
