Tuesday night, Oct. 2 many communities in the area stepped outside to meet and greet their neighbors, as part of the National Night Out program.
The event is meant to promote public safety, and community involvement. In this area, events were held in the East Aldine District at the new BakerRipley campus, in the Airline District at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, and in the North Houston District at Wussow Park.
In East Aldine, several hundred residents came out for a night of dancing, eating, games, viewing exhibits including the new BakerRipley campus, and music and fun as well as just meeting their neighbors.
The event was sponsored by the East Aldine District, BakerRipley, the Harris County Sheriff’s office, Brookside Funeral Home, Lone Star College, ESD #1, Westfield Fire Department, MacArthur Generals, MacArthur 9th grade, and Castlewood, High Meadows, and Green Forest Civic Clubs. Chick-Fil-A provided 400 sandwiches, which were quickly gone.
