STOW: The Stow Police Department and local Target store are holding Stow’s National Night Out event on Aug. 6 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the grassy area between SKIP Playground and Fire Station No. 1 on Darrow Road.
The free event will offer food, games, prizes and entertainment for residents of all ages. Children can play on inflatables or explore safety vehicles from the Stow Police & Fire Departments. Officers will be available to discuss safety with all residents, and parents can bring their children for finger printing or identification.
National Night Out is an annual event designed to strengthen our communities by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local law enforcement partners. The goal is to heighten crime-prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs.
