National Night Out ** UPDATED**

UPDATE [8/4/2009 2:37PM] I’m now hearing the PSA 101W NNO walk will begin at 7th & H at 6:30PM rather than Golden Rule.


National Night Out (NNO) is an annual event, sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, that takes place on the first Tuesday in August. Each year, the Metropolitan Police Department actively participates in National Night Out by rallying community members throughout the District of Columbia to join with neighbors and police officers in their PSAs to be a part of this annual event.

I’m still trying to track down more hard specifics, but here’s what I’ve heard so far for NNO in the Triangle:

From Lt Royal:

“PSA 101 is going to do a walk from Chinatown to the Golden Rule building (1050 NJ Ave NW) for an ice cream social and then back. Starts at 6:30pm. Residents can use the walk to point out issues to the police”.

Additionally the MVSNA National Night Out group will meet at Safeway at 7:30PM.

UPDATE [8/3/2009 5:37PM]
From DNA President Miles Groves:

National Night Out is scheduled for tomorrow night, Tuesday, August 4. This year we start with an ice cream social at The Golden Rule Plaza located at 1050 New Jersey Avenue NW at 6:30PM.

Following this “meet and greet” social hour, Lt Craig Royal will partner with members of the 101W neighborhood for a community walk from Golden Rule along the K Street Corridor to Chinatown and back. Throughout the night crime prevention literature and discussions will be held for community members. It will be an opportunity to point out areas of concern along the walk as well as sharing other parts of the neighborhood that deserve greater focus. This is a great opportunity to meet with neighbors, walk the neighborhood, and discuss issues with police officers responsible for the downtown neighborhood.

This is an important way to show our support for our neighborhood police officers, so please try to attend.

DNA meeting tonight

From DNA president Mile Groves:

Dear Neighbors,

This was a great week for our neighborhood as over 50% of our registered voters went to the polls. We will not know the full participation until the absentee votes and special votes were included, but it was a great day for participation. Last night was a great night as Commissioner Docter (who was elected again to serve as one of our commissioners) was honored by the Downtown Business Improvement District as the Downtown Citizen of the Year.

November Meeting
Our regular November meeting is scheduled for next Tuesday, November 11th. As usual the meeting starts at 6:30PM and will end promptly at 8PM at Calvary Baptist Church. Sandwich fare will be provided at the beginning. We will have PSA 101W officers attending who will be able to update us on 7th Street activity and other public safety concerns of our neighborhood. This is the last regular meeting for 2008 and a key topic of discussion will concern objectives for 2009.

Please join us and bring your ideas. If you have not RSVP’s, please do so we have a sense of how to set up the room and how much food to order.

Thanks for your support,

Miles E. Groves
Downtown Neighborhood Association

I won’t be attending tonight. If anyone else has a chance to feel free to email me a recap and I will post it -or- leave a recap in the comments.
