Our Club participated in the Yonkers Precincts' National Night Out observances on Tuesday 7 August from 5 to 9 pm.  Our Club had a table with information about the Club's activities, and brochures on membership at the 1st Precinct's location at Andrus Field while a similar table was set up at the 4th Precinct's location at the JFK Marina.  One of the highlights of our presence at the Marina was a professional face-painter. Heavy rain and lightning forced the event at Andrus Field to be cut short.
Sporting a large Rotary umbrella, Club President Sundra Lee-Ingemanson, Secretary Seeme Asad and PDG Matts Ingemanson were at the Club table the Andrus Field, handing out brochures about the Club and talking to visitors about our activities.
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.  National Night Out was developed as a crime prevention program that emphasizes building a partnership between the police and the community. Community involvement in crime prevention is generated through a multitude of local events, such as block parties, cookouts, parades, contests, youth activities, and seminars.  Local organizations set up tables with giveaways, while local restaurants  provided plenty of food and light drinks at the locations.
The Yonkers Police Precincts organized special events on National Night Out.  This is the second time our Club participated in this observance at Andrus Field and the third time at the JFK Marina.  Here are some pictures of the event at the Andrus Field Location.
