The Glassell Park Neighborhood Council, in collaboration with Councilmembers Gilbert Cedillo, Mitch O’Farrell and Jose Huizar as well as the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Fire Department, will host the first official National Night Out event in Glassell Park in many years.
This family-oriented event will be held outdoors and will feature “Touch a Truck”—a fire truck, police vehicle, dump truck and other vehicles will be available for children to “touch” and learn about what they do. There will be a pie-baking contest and a chili cook-off, both free to enter, and a free dinner will be cooked and served by GPNC Board members. Local organizations will engage with the community at information booths.
Inside the Glassell Park Community & Senior Center, GPNC Area Representatives will each host an area table. Residents will be able to locate their area, then find their table and talk with their area representative to express concerns and ideas to improve the community. In addition, they will be able learn how to set up a Neighborhood Watch on their block. Official Neighborhood Watch signs will be available to existing groups.
Substantial outreach will be employed to engage Glassell Park residents to come out and get to know one another.
