National Night Out is such a great opportunity for the community to come out, eet their neighbors and receive some practical tips on home and personal safety and prevention, said Molalla PAL Board member and event co-coordinator Beth Faulhaber. We are happy to be a part of this event, and we hope to see everyone there on Aug. 6.
The Molalla Night Out is open to Molalla, Mulino and Colton residents and its free.
The goal is to heighten crime prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs and most importantly, send a message that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
