Aldermen Robin Rue Simmons and Eleanor Revelle have announced plans for their joint 5th Ward and 7th Ward celebration of community as part of National Night Out. This annual community-building event promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.

Our event will be centered at Twiggs Park and will feature great entertainment from local DJs, the Let’s Play mobile trailer from Parks and Rec, an informal conversation with Evanston police officers, food (of course) and lots of opportunities to mingle with old friends and new.

Anyone with suggestions of activities or would like to help in some way, please contact me at erevelle@cityofevanston.org or call 312-459-0644.
