WHAT:           Rimgrove Park Annual National Night Out and Community March


The public is invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide and attend Rimgrove Park’s Annual National Night Out and Community March.  In celebration of the decline in crime in the Valinda Corridor, an extraordinary evening is planned this year for the entire family.  The event begins with the march and proceeds with a free concert and family activities such as game and information booths, face painting, watermelon eating and pie throwing contests, raffle prizes, giveaways and much more!   Free refreshments, hot dogs and hamburgers will also be provided. 


The event is planned in partnership with Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina’s office, County Parks and Recreation, Sheriff’s Industry Station, local Neighborhood Watch and MASH groups, and is sponsored by Target. 


National Night Out is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. Sponsor is the national sponsor.  In 2009, more than 30 million people participated from 14,625 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.  This year’s National Night Out is expected to be the largest ever.
