Willow Glen Neighborhood Association (WGNA) welcomes your participation

National Night Out returns to Willow Glen on Tuesday 01 August 2017.   The Willow Glen Neighborhood Association will be organizing the event with the San Jose Police Department and this year's host, the Willow Glen Creamery, at the Willow Glen Town Square on the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Willow Street.   Thanks to this year's host, free ice cream will be offered to every guest that participates, 6:30 to 8:00 PM.

National Night Out is a national program (trademarked) by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW).  It occurs annually on the first Tuesday of August.  NATW describes the event as "an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live."  

Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide

Coordinated by local police departments and grassroots organizers in every city across the United States, this is a community-based event with the purpose of awareness-raising, partnership, and neighborhood development. 

In agreement with National Night out themes, WGNA will also host its next Board Meeting and guest speaker presentation on Thursday 10 August with the San Jose Police Department on the topic of neighborhood watch, and other anti-crime efforts.

"National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances."
