National Night Out

Final planning is underway for WBNA’s first National Night Out event Tuesday Aug 1st

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

West Bench Neighborhood Association would like to invite you to join us for FREE  Delsa’s ice cream and activities.

Where: Fairmont Park

When: Aug 1st 6:00PM to 8:00PM


The city will be having visits from the Police and from the Fire department during this time. Please come and join us!
