Over A Dozen Everett Neighborhoods Holding National Night Out Events Tuesday Evening

For 36 years National Night Out has worked to bring neighbors together to help fight crime.

Years ago Everett used to have a single city-wide celebration near the Everett Mall where people could gather, have a hot dog and ice cream and meet with police and public safety professionals.

About 7 years ago that idea morphed into smaller gatherings where people got together right in their own neighborhoods and really made a local connection with each other. The public safety professionals traveled to those events throughout the city and met directly with neighbors.

Here is a list of some of the events happening Tuesday around neighborhoods in Everett, Washington.

That will happen again this Tuesday night as more than a dozen neighborhood gatherings are set from one end of Everett to the other.

Some are simple ice cream social events and other are elaborate pot lucks with music, games and prizes.

Either way it’s a great opportunity to break the ice and meet people who live in the same area as you.

Representatives from the Everett Police Department, Everett Fire Department and City Government will be stopping by neighborhood events to say hi, answer questions and provide suggestions on how neighbors can work together to watch out for each other. Not only to prevent crime but also in the event of a natural disaster or other emergency.
