Corcoran Block leaders plan for Neighborhood Night Out over barbecue July 13


Start planning a National Night Out event for your block!

Is there a block club near you, or have you thought about starting one? An occasional meeting of neighbors on your block helps make a friendlier community that is stronger against crime. Do you need some ideas or motivation to organize a block club, or to keep neighbors connected?

Hamburgers and a hot grill will be provided. Have a hamburger or bring something to grill or share. Everyone is welcome, whether you’re a block club pro or you’ve never tried it before. Join us any time between 6:00 and 8:00. While you’re at the event, learn more and get involved with Corcoran committees including Corcoran GROWS, Housing, Land Use & Transportation, Mujeres en Accion y Poder, or get involved as a writer, photographer, or copy-editor for The Corcoran News!
