National Night Out In Edgewater Tomorrow To Strengthen Police-Community Relationships

NatNight_Margate_ParkFrom the 48th Ward Office:

On Tuesday August 2, our neighborhood, along with thousands of others across the United States, will take part in National Night Out, an annual community-building campaign that strives to strengthen police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie with a goal of making our communities safer, better places to live.

The Alderman’s office invites you to come out to Margate Park at 4921 N. Marine Dr. and Swift School at Winthrop and Thorndale for free food, games, positive loitering and interaction with our local police officers. Staying connected as a community is a key to increasing public safety for all of us.

Join your neighbors, local police and me for these fun, positive nights out.

National Night Out is tomorrow,  Tuesday August 2, with two events taking place in Edgewater:

  • Join your neighbors and police from 6-8 pm at the Swift School playground, 5900 N. Winthrop Ave., for sport games, food and a positive loitering walk. Click here for more information.
  • Come out to Margate Park, 4921 N. Marine Dr., from 5:30-7:30 pm  for food, entertainment, youth activities, raffles and yoga with fellow residents and police. Click here for more information.
