Southern Denton County residents are invited to join the nearly 38-million Americans who partake in National Night Out each year on next Tuesday, October 4. National Night Out is a cohesive effort to promote crime prevention, police-community partnerships, and neighborhood unity.
Flower Mound neighborhoods that organize National Night Out Block Parties from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday will be eligible to compete for the annual Flower Mound Neighborhood of the Year award. Registered block parties could also receive visits from members of the Town Council, FMPD, FMFD, and McGruff the Crime Dog. Street barricades will be provided upon request.
Once again this year, children in kindergarten through fifth grade, are encouraged to participate in a poster contest.
