National Night Out
Tuesday, October 2, 2018
Fall Creek Clubhouse
5:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Neighborhood unity is an important part of crime prevention, so come join your neighbors on Tuesday, October 2, to promote police-community partnerships between Fall Creek and our Sheriff’s Department. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that focuses on neighborhood camaraderie to make our villages safer and a better place to live. Together, we are making that happen.
The event will be celebrated in the parking lot behind the Fall Creek Clubhouse, near the Pool and 1 and the Fall Creek Tennis Courts. You will need your Amenity Badge to get food tickets. To entice you to join us, we are happy to announce that Chick-fil-A, Lenny’s, and HEB will be providing refreshments. You will need a food ticket for a Chick-fil-A sandwich/nuggets or a 5-inch Lenny’s sub. HEB will have water, cookies, chips, and fruit (no ticket required). Loli Rentals will have free popcorn and snow cones. Through our partnerships with local law enforcements, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet and greet our Fall Creek Deputies from the Sheriff’s Department, Firefighters from the Eastex Fire Department, and Harris County Emergency Services District 1 First Responders. All will be displaying their safety vehicles.
We will be having fire extinguisher instructions with hands-on participation, courtesy of the Eastex Fire Department. The Karate School will also give a demonstration.
Activities for children will include 3 bounce houses: one for kindergarten-age and below, one for first through fifth grade, and a dual slide for all. (Mathnasium and American Dream Realty each sponsored a bounce house.) We ask that parents always supervise their children in the bounce house area. We will also have an obstacle course provided by Cross Fit, sidewalk chalk, and a coloring contest. DJ Robert Reeves will play family fun music and help with announcements.
In the event of rain, we will move all food vendors inside the Clubhouse, so come rain or shine!
We will have shuttle vans to transport you from the Fall Creek Elementary School parking lot to the event! We only have a few parking spaces at the clubhouse so take advantage of this great convenience between 5:30 pm and 8:15 pm, courtesy of Sterling McCall Auto.
Become a Block Watcher
What’s that? A block watcher keeps an eye on your street and reports crimes to 911 and reports suspicious activity or persons to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office at 713-221-6000, option 6. It’s that easy and it’s that important.
THE FALL CREEK CRIME WATCH COMMITTEE LOOKS FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ON OCTOBER 2, 2018.
History of National Night Out
National Association of Town Watch (NATW) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and promotion of various crime prevention programs including neighborhood watch groups, law enforcement agencies, state and regional crime prevention associations, businesses, civic groups, and individuals, devoted to safer communities. The nation’s premiere crime prevention network works with law enforcement officials and civilian leaders to keep crime watch volunteers informed, interested, involved and motivated. Since 1981, NATW continues to serve thousands of members across the nation.
The introduction of National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime,” in 1984 began an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie, and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. NATW’s National Night Out program culminates annually. In Texas we gather on the first Tuesday of October.
