Neighborhoods throughout the North Channel area, and greater Houston, observed National Night Out on Tuesday evening, an annual event to promote public safety and community involvement.”
In Galena Park, city councilmen Juan Flores and Cruz Hinojosa led the event, with a gathering at the Shafaii parking lot on Holland Avenue. Present were firemen, police, and EMS with their equipment, LULAC, and many other organizations. Music, food, games, moonwalk, raffles, and friendship were abundant, with over 200 hot dogs served to the crowd.
In Jacinto City, the main event was held at City Hall on Mercury, with councilmen and Mayor Diaz hosting. Crowds consumed the food, played games, and had a good time. Also elsewhere in the city, neighborhoods held their own parties. At least eleven sites were listed on an official handout, including the home of City Manager Lon Squyres, Councilman Allan Lee, the Library, Second Baptist Church, Munn Street Baptist Church, Big Bass Resort, and Jacinto Palms Apartments, to name only a few.
