National Night Out!
Canceled for 2020!
Covid-19 Impact had forced us to cancel National Night Out for 2020
Across the nation, there is an abundance of caution to keep everyone safe. All National Night Out events across the nation have been CANCELED FOR 2020. The Board of Directors and the NNO Planning Committee have decided to also CANCEL our event for 2020.
This 2019 Family Event Was Great!
The event was a HUGE success. If you were there, you were part of the first annual event of this kind for our community. Coming together as a community is what makes us stronger. This event did that.
If you missed it, well you missed a fun evening. But there is next year for you to become part of the community celebration.
If you were there, we hope you had a good time, enjoyed the great food and learned a little something along the way.
Part of being a community is sharing the good times and knowing your neighbors.
This was our first annual event, so keep in touch, there is more to come.
All Across America, National Night Out is a community-building campaign that promotes strong police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live and work. Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states on the first Tuesday each August.
WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER
The Echo Lake Community Group is working to help make our community safer and a more caring place to live. Our mission includes building trust among rural neighbors who often do not know each other. Our community, however, may be totally isolated from main highways and roads and forced to rely only upon one another in a major natural disaster, such as a devastating earthquake. As a part of the rural community-building effort here, a team of local volunteer leaders produced a meet-your-neighbor celebration for National Night Out .
At our first annual community-wide event we had:
270 Neighbors Participated
