Next Week’s, It’s “National Night Out” in Altadena
Altadena’s National Night Out activities will be held on Tuesday, August 4th, at the Farnsworth Park at 568 E. Mount Curve Avenue, starting at 5 p.m.
Deputy Dan Paige at the Altadena Sheriff’s Station said the Night Out will be held on the middle picnic area south of the covered picnic area and north of the softball diamond. The area is far more level than areas used in the past and there is ample setting, lighting and electrical outlets.
As in previous years’ National Nights Out in Altadena, various units and agencies look at the event as an opportunity to touch base with the community and showcase their personnel and services. National Nights Out are held to promote closer cooperation between the community and institutions involved in law enforcement and public safety functions.
Among the units that will be represented at the Altadena National Night Out are the Altadena Uniform Patrol, Altadena Posse, Altadena Search and Rescue, Altadena CERT, Altadena Explorer Post, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s VIDA Program, Sheriff’s Disaster Communications, Schaffer Ambulance, LACO Fire Stations 11, 12 and 66; and the California Highway Patrol, Altadena Station.
Vendors can set up their booths between 3 and 4 p.m. and the event opens to the public from 5 until 8 p.m. Thus far, vendors who have confirmed participation include Wal-Mart that will provide water, medical information and shopping bags; ADT securities, Altadena Town and Country Club which will provide some appetizers, and the Altadena Golf Course staff will be there to give away some items, possibly a free round of golf.
The public could mingle with the vendors and various demonstrations. Burgers, hot dogs, and hot links, along with all the condiments and water and soda will be provided by the Altadena Sheriff’s Station. A bounce house will also be installed at the park for the kids.
Community members are encouraged to bring salads, side dishes and desserts.
Altadena Sheriff’s Station will be posting more details about the National Night Out on its Facebook page, www.facebook.com/AltadenaSheriffsStation.
