Thank you to all volunteers and contributors for your participation at the National Night Out 2010 event hosted by the American Legion Post 577 and 474, the Polish –American Club, and other community organizations.
Your contributions and services propelled our neighborhood block party to new heights with an attendance up to 280 people this year. We hope to invite you to join us again next year and make National Night Out in our neighborhood a continuing annual event.
The National Night Out 2010 event is a nonprofit community event. Last year, the American Legion Post #577 held its first National Night Out event with a surprising attendance of over 250 residents. We met last years attendance with more people showing up and failing to register our guest book although many of them were children.
We celebrated the diversity of cultures in the neighborhood, which I had hoped to have the Hmong people come out of their ethnocentric cultures and meet their neighbors for community solidarity. The East side neighborhood can flourish when the people finally meet and know one another, which reduces crime.
We had many Games that included a Fishing game, pop ring toss, sucker tree, Twister, duck pond, and a Dunk tank.
We hosted excellent entertainment only by personal experience a person could enjoy that includes:
Acoustical Music and Songs by Randy Burger, Woodville, WI, firstname.lastname@example.org--Check out MySpace for further details;
Back to Back with Diamond-Mac (Neil Diamond and Stevie Nicks Tributes) Stewartville, MN --fantastic likeness of Neil Diamond and Fleetwood Mac. (612) 876-1094 or (507) 319-1094
