Mark your calendar and save the date of Tuesday, August 1 for our annual celebration of National Night Out. This is the evening we set aside each summer as a time to strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. It’s also a great time to meet new neighbors and renew friendships with those you haven’t seen in a while. Festivities will wind down at 8PM.
Free, delicious ice cream will be served by Bruster’s Ice Cream, compliments of Glenn and Lynn Miller, Realtors. There will be lots of fun activities for the children courtesy of Rec on the Move. We have invited community leaders, personnel from the RPD, fire fighters and trucks from the RFD, UR Public Safety and businesses from College Town.Tables for UMHN groups will be set up for information gathering. If you wish to receive neighborhood email notices from UMHN, make sure you sign up here.
Bring your lawn chairs and/or blankets and stay awhile. The festivities will begin at 6:00 at Eastmoreland Park (playground). Dress your kids in bathing suits or appropriate attire, and bring towels, as we anticipate the fire truck will spray water and create a large puddle for the kids to splash in. If it rains on the scheduled night, we’ll postpone till the following evening. We will post a sign at the park, and put a notice on the UMHN web site and FB page, if we have to reschedule.
Hope to see YOU there!

You may choose to spend time on one or more of these projects or come up with one of your own. Once you sign up, you will be contacted by a UMHN member and asked if you would be able to work on a project.
