The City of Opelika & Concerned Citizens of Opelika
Tuesday, August 3, 2021 from 5:30 PM-8:30 PM
Opelika’s National Night Out started several years ago with Mattie Clark and Oscar Penn, founders of the Concerned Citizens of Opelika. Valestine Penn soon became the chair of the event and has hosted NNO at Covington Center the past few years.
This year, the Concerned Citizens of Opelika have partnered with the City of Opelika to bring the event to courthouse square.
National Night Out is a Community-Building Campaign, to raise awareness on the following topics: Public Safety, Crime Prevention, Health, Education and Youth Programs.
Attendees will have the chance to interact with first responders from the Opelika Police Department, Opelika Fire Department, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, East Alabama Emergency Medical Services and Lee County Emergency Management Agency. Local community organizations will also provide resources and educational information. There will be free food, drinks, games, activities, live music and much more!
Attendees can also help us CRAM the CRUISER. First responders will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Food Bank of East Alabama.
