National Night Out at the lake
Submitted By Mary Shambaugh
Lake and Rosemont Area Residents Association would like announce our upcoming event in honor of Neighborhood Night Out / Ice Cream Social. Our particular neighborhood began this event unofficially five years ago on one of our courts in the neighborhood and it grew so large that we moved it to the Boathouse location at Lakeshore Park.
Last year nearly 500 members of our neighborhood attended; the Dreyers Foundation supplied the Ice Cream and the Boy Scouts served it up. Newark CERT manned an informational table, the Newark Police Dept. highlighted a vehicle tour, and the mayor is always in attendance. This year we are adding the ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Services) Group to set up a display table.
We made the decision to permanently host this event on the Neighborhood Night Out because when neighbors become more familiar with each other, crime goes down and safety goes up. We employ the same motto that NNO uses: "Give Crime a Going Away Party."
