Peoria neighborhoods celebrate "Night out against crime"

A big thank you to the City of Peoria, the Peoria Fire Department, and Steve Fairbanks, City of Peoria Neighborhood Development Specialist for all the great neighborhood events that were sponsored throughout the city last night during the "National night out against crime". The children in our association enjoyed a Fire truck demonstration and tour, balloons, coloring books and lots of ice cream. It is always great to re-connect with the neighbors, even the ones that hate your dogs and the ones you suspect have telescopes.

The National Night out against crime event is a component of the "Neighborhood Watch" program. Small grants are available to any neighborhood organizations that would like to be recognized as participating "Neighborhood Watch" members.
