On behalf of the District E-13 National Night Out (NNO) committee, we would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to everyone who helped make the District E-13 National Night Out 2010 celebration a great success: The Bromley-Heath Tenant Management Corporation for hosting the celebration and the Julia Martin Neighborhood Watch Group for co-hosting the event, as well as all volunteers. Their expertise and dedication were invaluable to our neighborhoods during this community festivity.

In addition, we would like to thank Boston Check Cashers Inc., Latino Restaurant, the Jamaica Plain Business and Professional Association, All Checks Cashed, Julia Martin Neighborhood Watch Group and the Boston Police Neighborhood Watch Unit. Their monetary contributions aided in many of the expenses incurred in this activity. We, as a community, believe that this particular event makes a tremendous difference by building stronger relationships that grow throughout the year. This is what makes Jamaica Plain and Egleston Square vibrant places for people to live, work, shop and raise families. We know that, by participating in National Night Out, we give crime and drugs a going-away party, and we send a clear message to criminals.

The success was also apparent in the children. They participated with their local police in educational and fun activities. This was a great way to meet new people and promote police/community relationships—striving for a safer upbringing of our neighborhoods. We hope that this year NNO made a difference in our community. Together, we will tackle crime and watch out for one another.
