Neighbors meeting neighbors and an opportunity to mingle with local law enforcement personnel, fire fighters and other branches of the city is what National Night Out, last Tuesday night in South Pasadena’s Orange Grove Park, is all about.
National Night Out is an annual community campaign to promote camaraderie between neighborhoods and the city.
Residents were given an opportunity to interact with the various city departments while children played games and took part in an abundance of activities.
Residents were given a chance to learn basic CPR from the fire department and received emergency preparedness information from the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).
K9s with police handlers roamed through the crowd while police officials talked about the city’s Neighborhood Watch program.
Individuals were given the opportunity to purchase a commemorative South Pasadena Police Pink Patch for only $10, with all proceeds benefiting breast cancer research and awareness.
