National Night Out 2008

Our Neighborhood Watch group participated in National Night Out on Tuesday evening at 6:30 with a big barbecue and potluck at my house on the corner of Damon and Hemlock. The weather was perfect and we had a great turn out of maybe seventy-five people or so. The evening was highlighted by visits from some of our local law enforcement and fire department people.

Our local Sergeant Mendoza, head of the Carmichael Sheriff's Service Station, showed up to say hi with a group of friendly volunteers and officers, including a member of the bomb squad with his K-9 bomb-sniffing partner, a Labrador mix.
Later, we got a surprise visit from our hard working local firemen from the Auburn Street station. The guys just came from a long shift and a call. It was great to see them, and they enjoyed showing off their amazing firetruck to us.

Also, CHP Officer White came by and visited for a while. More than one neighborhood kid got to sit on his motorcycle!

Thanks to all the who lent tables and chairs and showed up with all the great food... and a special thanks to Pete who manned the barbecue. It was a great event!
