One might call it a 'get acqainted' event. National Night Out was held at many locations across America Tuesday evening (Aug. 2nd). Lincolnton, Lincoln County, Newton and Kings Mountain were all participants.
The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office held its National Night Out in the field adjacent to the Walmart parking lot on Highway 73. In addition to the Sheriff's Office, fire departments, EMS, and other government agencies as well as commnity organizations participated.
In Lincolnton, block parties were held at multiple locations around town. Police and Fire Dept. personnel visited the block parties. The Fire Dept. cooled off kids at Oaklawn, and those participating enjoyed food, fellowship, and a chance to get better acquainted with police, fire, and other personnel.
Gaston County will hold its National Night Out next Tuesday (Aug. 9th) at Biggerstaff Park on the Dallas-Cherryville Highway.
