August 6, 2014 (Philadelphia) – Councilman Bobby Henon (6th District) and staff visited four separate National Night Out sites over two days to highlight the effort which brings neighbors together to promote community involvement and crime prevention.
“National Night Out is about celebrating the community that we often don’t see in the headlines and on television news,” Councilman Henon said. “By strengthening neighborhood bonds, we create and grow the foundations of those civic associations, town watch and community groups that are the lifeblood of the Northeast.”
Councilman Henon’s office was represented at each of the following locations, with the Councilman making stops at each:
- Target parking lot (kickoff event on August 4 - 7400 Bustleton Ave.)
- Mayfair (Frankford and Cottman Ave., right)
- Home Depot parking lot (Castor and Aramingo Ave.)
- Fox Chase Elementary School (500 Rhawn St.)
National Night Out began in 1984 as an effort to promote community involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. Since then it has grown to a network of more than 37 million people from 15,000 communities covering all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases, worldwide.
Councilman Henon’s office stressed the importance of staying connected, both to his office and the police. Constituents can contact the Councilman via text message at 215-392-6606 or through his website, www.bobbyhenon.com, both 24-hours a day.
