Latrobe to participate in National Night Out

Tuesday, July 30, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

The Latrobe police department will host the city's second annual National Night Out to encourage crime prevention.

The event, planned for 5:30 to 8 p.m. Aug. 6 at Memorial Stadium in Legion-Keener Park, will feature live music by the band Switch, as well as food, raffles, informational booths and demonstrations by the Latrobe and Ligonier Township K-9 units.

Volunteers will collect new and gently used books for pre-kindergarten through preteen reading levels to be donated to local organizations.

National Night Out, started in 1984, includes more than 37 million people in 15,000 communities across the United States and Canada, with events such as porch vigils, block parties, parades and safety demonstrations in an effort to enhance neighborhood camaraderie, crime prevention and police-community partnerships, according to its website: www.natw.org.
