National Night Out

            An enthusiastic "high-five" goes out to Marlborough Township Police Chief Darren Morgan and his cohorts for again organizing a National Night Out in our community.

            National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. It also provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

            The 2021 National Night Out is officially scheduled for the first Tuesday of August but local communities spread their events throughout the month.  The event in Marlborough Township is scheduled for August 14, from 3 to 7 p.m. at St. John's Lutheran Church in Sumneytown.

            With all of the negativity and attacks on police in general over the last year or so, it is a welcome opportunity to view and experience the positives of law enforcement and more.  It is a chance for folks to get out and learn a bit about public safety services in our community while supporting our police.

            Morgan recently said, "This is a great opportunity for the Upper Perkiomen Valley and surrounding communities to come out, have fun, learn about what emergency services our area provides, what we can do for them, the equipment we use, and the sacrifices we all make,"

            In addition to area police departments, local fire, emergency medical services and other service organizations will have their services on display and will be available to answer questions.  There will also be safety demonstrations.

            Last year's event was cancelled due to quarantine restrictions, but if you had the chance to attend the great 2019 event, know that this year's will be bigger and better.

            It is something you don't want to miss.

            And, kudos to the Montgomery County Department of Public Safety (DPS), who will be on hand to offer the COVID-19 vaccine.  The department, in partnership with area townships and municipalities will offer the Johnson and Johnson one-shot vaccine through its mobile vaccination unit to anyone 18 and older.  Attendees can walk-up to receive the vaccine during the event and no pre-registration is required.

            In addition to the mobile vaccine unit, various DPS staff including their 9-1-1 tele-communicators, Public Information Officer, and their mobile 9-1-1 field communications/command post unit will be on hand as well.

            Come out and experience and enjoy this great event and help bring back a true sense of community.

            It is a National Night Out you don't want to miss.

            Hope to see you there.
