National Night Out 2017

National Night Out is this Tuesday 8/1!

What is National Night Out?
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.

In other words, it’s a night to get together with your neighbors and take a stand for your neighborhood. A stand against crime, a stand for your community. It’s a block party with a cause!

Join up with the block party closest to you!
Or, come join the 5000 Block of Parker at Brannon. They will be out from 6p-10p. All are welcome!

Neighborhood Open House at Gateway Science Academy

Join us for a Neighborhood Open House at Gateway Science Academy (GSA). It will be a great opportunity take a tour, ask questions, find out what they have been up to, and how we in the neighborhood can work together with them.

The open house will be 7PM Thursday February 2nd at GSA on Fyler. Enter on the East side of the building, by the flagpole. Download the Open House Flyer for more info.

2016 Holiday Event at FRC

KHNA is very excited to again have their Holiday event at the Family Resource Center (FRC). Our event will be Thursday December 8th at 6pm, at the FRC located at Fyler & Kingshighway. We’ll wrap gifts for the kids, help decorate their facility, and have some light snacks.

What can you bring to donate to the cause?
Feel free to bring a NEW gift that can be wrapped and given to the kids they support. They especially need books for teens, or baby board books, since they run out of those first. Stuffed animals are great too. They also need wrapping paper and gift wrapping supplies. They go through a lot of it!

Want to know more about the FRC?
Their mission is to give kids a chance at a better life by preventing and treating all forms of child abuse and neglect by strengthening families through family-centered therapeutic, educational, and support services. Visit their website for more info.

How Can I Participate?
Throw a NNO party on your block! You can register here with the City. There is no fee; the registration is really so the city knows which streets to close off.

Or, attend a NNO block party! Attend the one on your block, or a nearby block.

Are there other blocks already participating?
Yes, as usual the 5000 Block of Parker is leading the way when it comes to NNO. They will be celebrating from 6p-10p. Check out their flyer for more info. All are welcome!
