National Night Out at Tietze Park Next Week!

NNOTP_Logo-smThis year’s National Night Out at Tietze Park will be Tuesday, October 7 from 5:30-8:00pm.

National Night Out is designed to strengthen community relationship between residents and public service organizations such as police, city departments and charitable organizations that serve the community. This year’s event is hosted by three neighborhood associations – Lower Greenville, Lakewood Heights, and Lowest Greenville West and The Friends of Tietze Park Foundation.

On hand will be police officers to talk to about crime concerns. In addition, we will have exhibits from quality-of-life and charitable organizations. As usual we will have the face painters, hotdogs, musical entertainment, and a bounce house.

This is a great opportunity to have some fun, meet some neighbors, and learn a little something about health and safety. Look for the manila flyer on your doorstep. The event will take the place of our regularly scheduled November LGNA meeting. Be sure to stop by and say hello!

Refresh the Painted Number on Your Curb or Driveway

Take advantage of a special fund-raiser project from Explorer Post 741, sponsored by the Dallas Police Department: For $15.00 Explorers will use reflective paint to paint your address number at the front and back of your house. They’ll use reflective paint that’s visible during day or night, ensuring emergency vehicles can find your address should they need to.

The Explorers are planning a “sweep” on Saturday, September 6. But if you can’t place your order by the 6th, they will come and do your painting at later dates. They will accept check, cash, or credit cards, and all funds will go towards the Dallas Explorer Program.

To place your order, contact Officer Lorenzo Carranza or 469-203-2203.
