Woodbury will celebrate its third-annual Night to Unite Aug. 2.
The event, formerly known as National Night Out, involves community members holding neighborhood block parties throughout the city.
According to the city of Woodbury website, Night to Unite is designed to:
• Help residents get to know their neighbors
• Build neighborhood involvement by bringing police and communities together, and
• Bring awareness to crime prevention and local law enforcement efforts
Night to Unite is sponsored by the Minnesota Crime Prevention Association, AAA of Minnesota/Iowa, and local law enforcement agencies.
Woodbury residents can request to have a police officer, firefighter, or emergency medical personnel visit their party by completing the “Night to Unite Block Party Application” form available on the city’s website.
However, due to the increase in requests for public safety personnel visits, applications must be submitted at least two weeks in advance of the party.
Applications can be found on the city’s website or by contacting Rebecca Leatherman, Woodbury Public Safety Department, at 714-3784.
