Our neighborhood always participates fully in the annual Neighborhood Night Out. We chip in for pizza, bring pot luck, white elephant presents, canned goods for the food bank, and get a clown to paint the kidsí faces. It is always fun to meet the new people and relax for awhile. The police stop by for a bite to eat, and the fire department always brings by a truck and lets the kids climb aboard and run the siren. The dogs in the neighborhood love THAT I can tell you!
