Post date: Jul 25, 2011 6:11:45 PM

Edsall Park Civic Association is hosting it's first (and hopefully annual) National Night Out party which is “America’s Night Out Against Crime.” This is an effort to heighten awareness and strengthen participation in local anticrime efforts in our community.

The event will be held on Tuesday, August 2 from 5-9 pm at the Edsall Park Swim Club located at 5505 Montgomery Street in Springfield. For our celebration with our neighbors, we are planning pizza, games for the kids, a moonbounce, police and fire representatives, and admission to our swim club.

We are planning a cake walk and we are asking for donations. Hopefully we can get at least 20 donations (cakes, brownies, etc.) to make this successful. Thanks to everyone I have already spoken to personally and have graciously said they would contribute. I have limited e-mail addresses so if you could spread the word for me or send e-mail addresses or telephone numbers I certainly would appreciate it. Please let me know if you can donate so I can keep tabs on how many we will have. And if you would like to help us with the games, cake walk, tickets, etc. that would be great........the more the merrier!

I am hoping everyone will join us August 2.......it should be a lot of fun for all. You can find out more info on the website (EdsallPark.org) or more about National Night Out (http://www.nationalnightout.org/nno/about.html)
