National Night Out Rocked Tietze Park!

From the pictures below, you can see that Tietze Park was rocking on Tuesday night, October 1! It was our annual National Night Out event, this year hosted by LGNA, Lakewood Heights NA, Lowest Greenville West NA and The Friends of Tietze Park Foundation. Dozens of volunteers from these organizations worked together to make this event happen. National Night Out is designed to strengthen community relationships between residents and public service organizations such as police, city departments and charitable organizations that serve the community. Visitors included Council Members Adam Medrano and Philip Kingston, who served as judge for the pie-eating contest.

Fire Station 17 brought their truck so that the kids could take a look inside a real fire truck. The Dallas Police Department sent several representatives including Central Division Chief Tittle. There was also ample representation from the Constables and Sheriff’s departments. Other participants were two dozen exhibitors including area churches, Dallas city services, security and health providers and neighborhood associations and crime watches. Volunteers and Boy Scouts served up over 700 hot dogs. Low-cost pet chipping was provided by Vickery Place Animal Hospital, the YMCA hosted an obstacle course and the Neighborhoods sponsored a bounce house for the kids. Neighbors enjoyed face painting for the kids and music for everyone by recording artist and Munger Place UMC Music Director Kate Miner.

Thanks to the many volunteers who made a successful event, and thanks to our neighbors for making the event a success! Photos below are a very kind courtesy from Goliad resident Harley Cozewith, a state-fair ribbon winning photographer.
