The Wrigley Area Neighborhood Alliance (WANA) will again host “National Night Out to Fight Crime” on Tuesday, Aug. 3 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the mini-park located between West 21st and Hill streets, west of San Francisco Avenue, next to the LA River.
The public is welcome to the event, which will be a potluck.
Attendees are encouraged to bring along a neighbor, a lantern and a salad, side dish, casserole or dessert to share. WANA will provide water, soft drinks, and coffee, as well as plates, napkins and utensils. A grill and charcoal will also be available.
Invited guests include Long Beach Police Department West Division Commander Joe Levy, Wrigley patrol officers, K-9 Unit and new Chief Jim McDonnell.
For those who have been considering forming a neighborhood watch, Wrigley Neighborhood Watch representative Maria Norvell will discuss her area’s crime-watch program.
Wrigley residents are encouraged to show their support of “National Night Out to Fight Crime” by leaving their porch lights on.
