National Night Out – Aug 5

Celebrate National Night Out on Tuesday, August 5, from 5-8 p.m. in Whitewater’s Cravath Lake Park!

Events hosted by Whitewater’s Police Department include a dunk tank (let’s mention the most important item first, shall we?), emergency vehicles on display, public safety demos, K9 unit demonstration, search & rescue horses on display, bounce house, raffle, refreshments, and more. C’mon out and learn more about bike safety, home and vehicle safety, Internet safety, sexual assault awareness, drug and alcohol use, AED/CPR use, etc. Drive the “Operation Click” golf carts to see why you shouldn’t drive while impaired. All dunk tank proceeds will support the local K9 unit. I, for one, am really looking forward to meeting K9 Officer Boomer, who was sworn in on May 14th! Woof!
