This week, Solebury Township will celebrate National Night Out with a fun event planned.
From 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, the police department, in collaboration with Solebury Township Parks and Recreation and the New Hope Eagle Fire Company, will host a variety of activities at Laurel Park, located at 3092 Sugan Road, behind the township building.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with police officers, fire company members, the ambulance squad, and staff from the Solebury Township Public Works Department.
The event’s aim is to build stronger ties between local services and the community they serve.
In addition to fostering community relations, the night promises plenty of family fun. The roster of activities includes a police K-9 demonstration, giant human billiards, and tours of police vehicles. Organizers hint that more surprises are in store for attendees.
Refreshments will also be available, with food, cold drinks, and ice cream on offer to keep participants fueled throughout the evening.
National Night Out was established in 1984 with the intention of fostering community-police partnerships, promoting neighborhood unity, and providing crime prevention education. This annual event is traditionally held on the first Tuesday of August and attracts approximately 38 million attendees across the U.S., Canada, and American military facilities worldwide.
