National Night Out events planned tonight
Citizen Staff Reports 08/02/11
Tonight, neighborhoods throughout Henrico County are joining forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the "28th Annual National Night Out" crime prevention event.
National Night Out is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, along with Henrico County Police and TARGET - the national corporate sponsor. Henrico County Police has 96 events registered throughout the county. A list of Henrico's National Night Out neighborhood events is available on the Neighborhood Watch web page that is accessible from the Henrico County Police web site at http://www.henricopolice.org.
It is anticipated that more than 37 million people from over 15,000 communities from all 50 states will participate in this year's event. Residents are encouraged to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police. Many neighborhoods throughout Henrico will be hosting special events such as block parties, cookouts, flashlight walks and youth activities.
Dr. Even Alexander, a New York Times best-selling author who has been featured on Oprah and Dr. Oz, was in town last week to promote his June 27 talk, "Proof of Heaven," at Glen Allen High School.
Alexander (pictured, at right, while Unity of Bon Air church member Harry Simmons interviews him) has written about what he considers to be his journey through the afterlife.
Tickets to this month's event are $25 and will support the new Bon Secours Hospice House being built later this year. > Read more.
The Innsbrook Rotary Club, which is celebrating its 25th year in 2015, has completed a number of volunteer projects this year and raised thousands of dollars for various organizations through three events.
The club's annual rose sale, benefit for youth live auction and Virginia Fire Games competition, combined with individual and corporate donations, have raised nearly $70,000 – money that the club contributes back to the community.
FeedMore is the beneficiary of the club's 25th anniversary project, which provides refrigerated trailers to be used for the distribution of food throughout Central Virginia. > Read more.
