Glenville's National Night Out

National Night Out is a community- police awareness-raising event held the first Tuesday of August.

The event has been held annually since 1984 and is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch.

The event is meant to increase awareness about police programs in communities, such as drug prevention. town watch/Neighborhood Watch, and other anti-crime efforts.

Mayor Allman and the City Council, the Glenville Police Department, Donna Waddell at Family Resource Network, and Glenville Senior Citizens were primary forces behind the community celebration which was held in our new city park.

Games and goodies were also a part of the Glenville celebration. Above are the participants in the adult sack race ready to start.

In spite of the 86 degrees and humidity off the charts, the Zumbah dancers were not put off by the heat.

Kids enjoyed having their faces painted.

Glenville Police Officers fingerprinted kids. Thanks Chief Moss and Officer Jenkins!

Happiness is a green balloon..... which will not float away if you tie it to your ankle.
Can you say precious!!

Here is a unique twist on body painting -- a ballerina hand puppet which can make graceful leaps.

It was a fun night for families and kids. Thanks to all who made it happen.
