Letter: National Night Out successful

On behalf of the Menahga's National Night Out Committee, we would like to thank those local businesses that donated to this year's event that took place on Tuesday, Aug. 3, 2010 at the Menahga City Park. Your generosity is very much needed and appreciated, to help make each and every event a success. All monies donated were used to purchase T-shirts, banners, refreshment as well as supplies. All the items donated were used as door prizes for the people who registered at the event.

We would also like to thank all of our wonderful and helpful volunteers! You all are the best! It's great to know we have a good group of people in the community that are dedicated to making our community a better and safer place to live.

Thank you to the city of Menahga for allowing us to hold the event at the city park and Mary Klamm, from the Menahga School, for allowing us to hold our planning meetings at the school. And as always thanks to Scott Koennicke, our fearless leader. It has been a pleasure working with you these past couple of years. I'm glad that we are on the same side!

We look forward to everyone's continued support for next year's event, which will be on Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2011. Watch the papers early spring 2011 for updates and information on this event.

Until then,

Patricia Samuelson

National Night Out event coordinator
