Fairhaven will hold its very first National Night Out this year. The nationwide movement to bring communities together offers an opportunity for community members to meet their local law enforcement professionals.
Fairhaven National Night Out is scheduled for Tuesday, August 1, 2f rom 4 to 8 pm. This free event will be held outdoors at Fairhaven High School, 12 Huttleston Ave., and the adjacent Fairhaven Academy lawn. There is no rain date scheduled.
Come meet the Police Department, and experience firsthand the equipment they use, including police cruisers, the police safety boat, the harbormaster truck, the animal control van, and learn more about the departments and people who keep you safe.
Refreshments will be supplied by local businesses, and attendees will be able to enjoy a bubble house courtesy of DeTerra’s Jump, and music courtesy of KJ Tunes.
Other offerings include: Free child ID cards from New York Life and informational booths on the new 911 system, fire safety, and foster parenting. Children will be invited to write messages of support to our police force on the walkway around the Academy Building lawn with chalk. This event will include a K9 unit demonstration from the Taunton Police Department.
