    David, you do know how to get the details. Beautiful photo to brighten up this cloudy morning!

    Is there a map or way of finding out where registered Night Out events are happening?

    • WSB August 2, 2022 (11:02 am)

      SPD didn’t map them this year.

    In to the Night, check around your neighborhood, in any direction, starting after 6pm. Someone is probably having a get together. Introduce yourself and find out if you should bring some potluck food or drinks. Keep your mask on or keep a fair distance because Covid is still around…..  We combine our group with Take Back the Night with knowing who is who and where, and share contacts, in case and when we might have a disaster…earthquake preparedness meetings.  If you don’t have any group to join, perhaps you can start a group up and down your own street for next time. It doesn’t have to be a year from now….we all need each other to feel safe and to know who is who, especially older citizens who live alone, or could use a helping hand and a friendly hello…….
