Our annual Ice Cream Social is held every August in recognition of National Night Out. The date for 2019 is August 6. Please join us from 6:30-8:30pm on the south end of Pontiac Field and on Fisk St. There will be ice cream, a bounce house, face painting, balloon animals, neighborhood trivia and more. Come out and meet your neighbors!
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie in an effort to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. Neighborhood events typically involve food, music and an opportunity to meet neighbors, local elected officials and public safety officers.
In Grand Rapids, city officials are encouraging residents to turn on their outside lights, lock their doors and go outside to meet their neighbors.
Contact Emily VanVels if you are interested in volunteering for this event.
