The first combined National Night Out was held on Tuesday, October 3rd at Bell Park in Greenwood. To say it was a success, is an understatement.
The rain didn’t stop the large crowds of continuous people coming in, as they were all treated with free food, music, activities, treats, and a demonstration of the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office Swat team and K9.
Hosted by the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office, Greenwood PD, and Hackett PD, the event allowed families to interact with officers and view various equipment of different departments. Children were especially inquisitive, interested and enjoyed spending time with the people who protect us all, and are the first to come to our need, without question.
Numerous door prizes were given away including a bicycle , shirts, a grill, and toys. The agencies involved wish to thank all the sponsors who made this a successful event.
