Summit's National Night Out Against Crime Set for Aug. 5

July 31, 2014 at 9:56 AM

SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Police Department, along with Summit Community Programs, will be hosting the Annual National Night Out Against Crime August 5 on Summit’s Village Green.  Some of Summit’s finest organizations will be on hand for a complete evening of education, entertainment, and community.  Opening Ceremonies are set to begin at 6 p.m.

National Night Out (NNO) was introduced in 1984 in an effort to promote crime prevention activities and bring neighborhoods together.  More than 2.5 million Americans took part in the first-ever NNO across 400 communities in 23 states.   Currently, NNO involves over 37.8 million people and over 16,000 communities from all f50 states.

Within the City of Summit, NNO has grown exponentially in size within the past five years alone.   What once started as a small-scale event in the parking lot of City Hall has now taken over Summit’s Village Green.  The 2013 NNO was recognized as one of the largest in the state of New Jersey, with Governor Chris Christie flying over to recognize the city and their efforts in supporting the NNO mission.

This year’s NNO will feature several demonstrations, including a Dog Show by the Union County K-9 Unit, a Summit Area YMCA Fitness Demonstration, and the popular Chris Clark Extreme Bike Stunt Show.  Attendees can also look forward to plenty of entertainment, food vendors, displays by some of Summit’s bravest, plenty of sports and games, and the annual dunk tank contest.   

Natioinal Night Out 2014 is sponsored by Summit Community Programs, Overlook Medical Center, Summit’s Volunteer First Aid Squad, the Summit Police Athletic League, Summit Fire Department, Soul Cycle, Summit Community Services, Shaping Summit Together, the Hat Tavern, and the Grand Summit Hotel.

For more information on Summit’s NNO, visit www.cityofsummit.org/recreation. or call 908 / 277-2932.  For more information on NNO, please visit www.natw.org.

Unlike a traditional open-end mutual fund, CEFs have a fixed number of shares available to trade. Their price is not tied to the value of the underlying portfolio. The only way the number of shares ...

Let’s make America the Greatest Show on Earth Again.


I was very sad to learn that after 146 years of big-top entertainment the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus is folding its tent and leaving town.


This comes a year after the circus, due to mounting pressures from animal rights activists, got rid of the elephants.


It is not really ...
