National Night Out 2019 - HPD and Parks & Rec Join Forces Again

by Press Release
August 1, 2019

Tuesday August 6, 2019, is National Night Out.  To observe this occasion, the Holliston Police Department and Holliston Park and Recreation Department are combining their efforts at Goodwill Park to build positive relationships with those who protect and serve while enjoying some great southern blues music.

 

The National Night Out website describes the event this way. "National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. 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."

Specifically, the Holliston Police plan to have several officers available, starting at 6 p.m., to meet citizens of all ages.  There will be police vehicles and equipment on display.  As in years past, the Jail Cell will be set up.  This year "The Cell" will have some 'cops and robbers' props to make it more interactive for the younger set.

Handouts and mementos will be available. Some information will be available to help all citizens be alert to threats to our safety.  Perhaps organizing a block watch or a 'dog walker' watch might be a way for everyone to live the "see something, say something" approach to community safety.

This is our chance to thank those who keep us safe 24/7 and build stronger bonds within the community, working together to help better protect our community.

But wait . . . there's more!!

Mark Frank, Director of Holliston's Park and Rec department was able to find funding to create a fifth concert in this year's Summer Concert Series.  As with all the previous concerts, the show at Goodwill Park starts at 6:30.  Mark is still working to arrange a food truck and / or ice cream vendor for the event.

Making its Holliston Summer Concert debut will be Jumpin' Juba, a southern blues trio.  Check out their music using the link below.

Jumpin' Juba is a trio: Steve Hurl, guitar and vocals; Bruce Ward, piano; Brian Flan, drums.

"The group mixes regional styles of blues from Chicago, Memphis and New Orleans together with rootsy rock & roll. The music is seasoned with jazz, folk, calypso, and Latin flavors. . . . The band's CD releases, Bumpity Bump and Slap Happy, have received regional and overseas airplay, and have garnered many favorable reviews in MA papers and on the internet."

This Night Out is one not to be missed by Hollistonians of all ages.
