South Whitehall celebrates National Night Out


Special to The Press

South Whitehall celebrated National Night Out Aug. 1 at Covered Bridge Park.

Hundreds of residents from throughout the region attended the event to rub elbows with neighbors, fire, EMS, police, township government agencies, as well as local vendors.

The goal of National Night Out is to enhance the relationship between residents and law enforcement and to provide residents with important resources in their communities.

The event also provides an environment where residents get to know each other.

Among the agencies taking part in the year’s National Night Out were South Whitehall Township police and government agencies, Cetronia, Greenwald and Woodlawn fire departments and the Cetronia Ambulance Corps.
