National Night Out comes to City Park National Night Out has been traditionally celebrat- ed in neighborhoods throughout the City of Greer, al- lowing neighbors and emergency responders to get to know each other better in an effort to improve safety and communication. The city expanded the celebration in 2016, hosting a National Night Out community event in early August at Greer City Park. “This is always an important event for us and I think city residents appreciated having a central loca- tion for a community gathering,” Sgt. Chad Richardson said. “Our goal was to let people known that we are all neighbors in the City of Greer and that we value the opportunity to join together for fun and fellowship.” Representatives from multiple city departments and Greer CPW were be on hand to greet visitors to the park. Police representatives from each of the city’s four patrol areas were present, giving the public an oppor- tunity to meet the officers who patrol their neighbor- hoods. K-9 officers Boss and Stryker greeted visitors and displayed their skills throughout the evening. Children had an opportunity to climb in and on two fire trucks and meet GFD personnel, play in bounce houses, and enjoy such activities as games and face painting led by city staff.
