National Night Out October 4

The Parmer County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a “National Night Out” Tuesday, October 4, 2016 from 6-8 p.m. at the Sheriff’s Office at 300 4th Street in Farwell. Everyone in Parmer County is invited to come out and enjoy hamburgers cooked by Cargill and the Friona Noon Lions Club “World Famous” French fries as well as games, music, prize giveaways and much 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 NNO was an offshoot of the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) which was founded by Matt A. Peskin in March of 1981. The NNO enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community while providing a great opportunity to bring everyone together under positive circumstances.
