Safe Summer Nights are back for 2021. Last year due to the Pandemic the practice of getting a free hotdog, bratwurst, and or a burger, chips, a healthy snack and a beverage was canceled.  Meeting your neighborhood Police Officers, Fire Fighters, EMTs and other First Responders through displays, activities such as climbing walls, K-9 demonstrations was sorely missed.

Safe Summer Nights was first started by Tom Campion, a citizen who thought kids and neighborhood people need to meet the professionals who serve them in the Police, Fire Fighters, and First Responders. It’s a chance to meet people you didn’t know lived in your neighborhood.

Here is the schedule for this Summer:
