Groups Plan Variety of National Night Out Events Oct. 4

Posted: 09/27/2016
Sixteen neighborhood groups have now signed up with the Knoxville Police Department to hold a “National Night Out” (NNO) event Tuesday evening, Oct. 4, 2016.

Chilhowee Park Neighborhood Association will grill hotdogs and hamburgers at its annual NNO cook-out at the pavilion near the Beaman Street entrance to Chilhowee Park, from 6-7:30 p.m.
 
Cold Springs Neighborhood Watch and Dandridge Avenue Neighborhood Watch once again will join forces to hold a sit-down, catered supper, from 5-7 p.m. at Beck Cultural Exchange Center, 1927 Dandridge Avenue.
 
Holding potluck suppers will be Harrill Hills Neighborhood Watch, Inskip Community Association, Norwood Neighborhood Watch, Old Sevier Community Group, Spring Hill Villas Homeowners Association, and View Park Neighborhood Watch.
 
Laurel Place Condos Neighborhood Watch, a 135-unit development off of Valley View Drive, is relying on each of its block captains to organize small gatherings of neighbors throughout the neighborhood between 6:30 and 8 p.m. No special events are planned --- just an opportunity to meet one another and catch up on the news.
 
Moss Creek Villas Homeowners Association and Woodale Drive/Central Avenue Pike Neighborhood Watch will each hold community events Tuesday evening.
 
Old North Knoxville, Inc. is encouraging neighbors to gather for refreshments starting at 6 p.m. in the park on Oklahoma Avenue.
 
West Haven Village Neighborhood Community will gather at 6 p.m. at their usual meeting place (Table Church, 3108 Basswood) for pizza and iced tea. Neighbors are either donating or soliciting prizes such as movie tickets, a Fandango gift card, free haircut coupons, and cakes for a cake walk.
 
At least two groups will be observing NNO by encouraging neighbors to turn on porch lights: Delrose Drive Neighborhood Watch and Stratford Park Neighborhood Watch.
 
Register your event with the KPD Safety Education Unit by notifying Neighborhood Watch Coordinator John Morgan at jmorgan@knoxvilletn.gov or 865-215-1519. This will ensure that KPD schedules officers to attend your event. Be sure to give the name and phone number of your contact person and organization, the time your event will begin and end, and the exact location.

In addition, please provide the same information to the Office of Neighborhoods via Debbie Sharp at 865-215-4382 or dsharp@knoxvilletn.gov and your group can be added to this online list.
