The National Night Out event is on Tuesday, August 2nd, but the City of Knox has postponed its observation until Monday, August 8th at 7:00 p.m. Greg Matt from the Knox Neighborhood Watch organization said he didn’t want to interfere with Andy Howes Memorial Service which is scheduled for the same evening.
“We’ll have a street dance for everyone of all ages,” said Greg Matt of the festivities. “The Boy Scouts will be downtown helping us out and there were will be police cars, the new Hummer and the fire trucks will be there. We’re going to have the flashlight parade starting dusk and this year we’re going to take the parade, lead by new Hummer, down Main Street.”
The Police Department will be doing fingerprinting for the kids and there will be informational items for you concerning Neighborhood Watch.
The purpose of the National Night Out event is for you to get out and meet officers on the police force, the emergency responders and others in your neighborhood.
