Plan or attend an event on your block; CNO can help
National Night Out is an annual nationwide event that encourages residents to get out in their community, hold a block or apartment party, and get to know other neighbors. Will your block or apartment gather for National Night Out? There’s still time to plan a simple event. It can be as simple as inviting neighbors to enjoy a potluck meal in someone’s front yard.
Help Available. Do you need help planning an event, making simple flyers, connecting with others on your block, or knocking on doors? Contact Brettina Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Edain Altamirano (email@example.com) by e-mail or at 612-724-7457. The CNO office also offers free photocopies for block meeting flyers any time of the year.
To find an event near you and other resources, go to www.corcoranneighborhood.org/NNO.
Don’t forget to stop at the Midtown Farmers Market on the way home to pick up fresh veggies or flowers for your National Night Out Party! They are open from 3-7pm at 2225 East Lake Street.
If you are a block leader, stop by CNO on August 1st or 2nd during the day and pick up business coupons and information for your block!
