A great ‘Night’ - photos


Colette Kasper, left in the top photo, looks on as her granddaughter, Calisi, 2, jumps in a bounce house donated by one of the neighbors.

Colette Kasper hosted a Night to Unite (formerly National Night Out) gathering on the blocked-off street in front of her Inver Grove Heights home Tuesday, Aug. 5. She said she decided at the last minute to host the block party, thinking it would be a good way to meet new neighbors and talk about how to keep the neighborhood safe, “so that you’re watching everybody’s back.”

I was thrilled to see the picture of my Grandniece, Calisi Kasper, who attended this nationally celebrated annual event in her community! I am a retired lieutenant from Charleston, WV P.D. It was my responsibility to coordinate our local celebrations of "National Night Out Against Crime" on the first Tuesday in August for over 12 years, as the Commander of Community Services. We believe that community support is essential to solving crime problems and this event was always a way to celebrate the Emergency Services' relationship with the community! Thanks for covering the event, and getting kids involved.
