The Cranford Police Department will be participating in the 29th Annual National Night Out on Tuesday, August 7th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. near the Gazebo at the intersection of North Union Avenue and Springfield Avenue.
This free nationwide event is designed to promote crime prevention awareness. It also allows the public to interact with members of the police department and obtain information about the department's many programs.
There will be displays of police vehicles, including a police car, zodiac boat, motorcycle, and emergency service unit. A DJ, face painter, and magician will be on hand to entertain. Robert Wood Johnson Hospital and the Westfield YMCA will be handing out literature and giveaways. The Cranford Taekwondo Center will be putting on a free demonstration.
For the 4th year in a row, a blood drive will also be held during National Night Out. This year the drive is being held to celebrate all that’s great about Cranford since the devastation left by Hurricane Irene. Members of the Cranford PBA #52 will be on hand to give out free Italian ices to all in attendance. All are welcome.
