Pitman Creek North participated again in the Texas’ National Night Out on October 1st by hosting a neighborhood get-together at Hackberry Park for all our residents. National Night Out is an annual event hosted by the National Association of Town Watch with the primary purpose being to get neighbors to leave their front porch lights on, showing their support for their local police departments in the fight against crime. Neighbors are encouraged to get out of their houses and meet other neighbors in the area and get to know them.
Plano Police Crime Prevention officers attended, speaking with the residents and answering questions. We were able to meet one of the newest officers assigned to our specific area and find out that there are now four officers rotating exclusively through our neighborhood: this allows them to become much more familiar with the area, the residents, and any problem situations that arise. Again, the Plano Police spokesman encouraged the Pitman Creek North neighborhood to be proactiveness in watching out for our neighborhood. Unfortunately, the fire department wasn’t able to attend this year because they were shorthanded but hopefully next year we will be able to have them back – the kids love those fire trucks!!
Thanks for all of those who came out, enjoyed the great weather, met and visited with neighbors, while enjoying free root beer floats. The children seemed to love the bobbing for apples, too.
Again, thank you for sharing your evening with your fellow Pitman Creek North neighbors! As we gather as neighbors and friends, we create a closer knit community…one who watches out and cares for one another. Thanks to our community police who came out to meet and educate us as well as all those residents in the neighborhood who worked to make this annual event a success. And a BIG thank also goes out to Denise Gooding, PCNHA Activities Chairperson, and those who helped to make this event such a yearly success!
