Sheriff's Office to host National Night Out

The Parmer County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting a “National Night Out” on Tuesday, October 6 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Sheriff’s Office at 300 4th Street in Farwell. They are inviting everyone county-wide including Friona, Bovina, Farwell, Lazbuddie and Rhea to come out and enjoy hamburgers, drinks, games, music, prize giveaways and lots more.

The National Night Out (NNO) is a cooperative effort designed to bring communities together with Law Enforcement and First Responder agencies. The NNO promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, better places to live.

The Sheriff’s Office could not do this event without the help of the communities and the following donors: Cargill, Friona Noon Lions, Sweet Bran, Adelyadas Dulce, Blanca’s, Crime Stoppers, Friona Star, Panhandle Regional Planning Commission, Ben E. Keith, Headquarters Restaurant and the Stateline Tribune.

Cargill will be preparing hamburgers while the Friona Noon Lions will be serving up their “World Famous” French fries. The Stateline Tribune has donated a bicycle that will be given away at the event. There will also be face painting, grab bag giveaways and many other fun activities to bring the community together.

The NNO was an offshoot of the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), which was founded by Matt A. Peskin in March of 1981. To date there are 38 million neighbors participating in over 16,000 communities in the NNO and NATW.

The NNO enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

The communities of Friona, Bovina, Farwell, Lazbuddie and Rhea are encouraged to come out and enjoy this event and remember a time when communities kept their porch lights on and opened the door even when we didn’t know who rang the bell. To remember a time when we would leave the back door unlocked during the day.
