Night Out Against Crime update - Aug 5

Eastwood Neighbors Association, Lockeland Springs Neighborhood Association, Historic East End and Historic Edgefield are partnering to offer our community an evening of music and fun. The FREE event will be held at the intersection of 14th & Woodland St. on Tuesday, Aug 5, from 5pm to 8pm. There will be live performances by area musicians, hot dogs and other refreshments, a bounce house, a visit from Fire Hall No. 14, crime prevention information booths, and plenty of good will!

The National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

Please bring your own lawn chairs to sit in; also, we will be collecting gently used children's clothes and new children's underwear/socks for donation to Cora Howe Elementary School .


The intersection of 14th St and Woodland St will be closed from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday August 5th for the National Night Out Against Crime. Cars will be prohibited from moving on Woodland St from 13th St to 15th St between 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Cars parked before 4:00 p.m. on Woodland St. will need to stay parked until after the intersection is reopened at 10:00 p.m.

Please come out, meet your neighbors, and enjoy!
