National Night Out is a success

Jan Vargo - Huber Heights City Council, At Large

Did you know our city had another successful event this week?

National Night Out was held at three different schools so that families from all areas of the city could attend. As usual, the evening would not have had the success it had without the wonderful volunteers that stepped up and made it happen.

I first have to compliment Officer Savard for coming up with the idea to take the event to the people rather than have it in one location and have the people come to them. Next I want to thank the three ladies who took on a venue and arranged the activities, volunteers, and entertainment for that location. Pat Stephens, Anna Kissick and Janell Smith did a bang up job preparing things for all who attended. Thank you ladies for all you did to make the evening a success.

Did you know the next community movie is scheduled for Aug. 15 at the Eichelberger Amphitheater?

The FREE movie begins at 9 p.m. and will be Disney’s “Big Hero 6.” This movie is sponsored by the Huber Heights Rotary and hosted by the Arts and Beautification Commission. These movies have been quite popular this year. Bring your blanket and lawn chairs if you wish to see a Disney movie with your kids. This will be the last one of the year, so take advantage of one last evening under the stars.

Concession food will be available for purchase if you want to come early. There is a rain date scheduled for Aug. 22 so mark that on your calendar as well.

Did you know this is the week school starts in Huber Heights?

That means the students will be out early and may not be as careful as they should when they cross the street. Please be ever vigilant and do not speed on our residential streets. The beginning of the school year is such an exciting time, especially for the younger ones. They sometimes forget to watch for traffic, so we must watch for them.

Did you know there were over 50 people who came to Disc Golf Day at Community Park?

I have to admit it will require a lot of practice before I will be very good, but the kids really enjoyed it. If you have not tried out the course it is nine holes set among the trees in Community Park. It is certainly good exercise and something the entire family can enjoy together.

Thanks to the Parks and Recreation volunteers who helped with the registration. And thanks to the Mayor for encouraging folks to come learn the game. But most of all thanks to the volunteers from the Dayton Disc Association who did a great job instructing, helping and encouraging everyone….even when your disc was waaay off the mark!
