As I learned during the childhood days of this site, LaVergne indeed DOES sponsor a National Night Out (Against Crime) in our own backyard – just like other cities also host. What’s different about it this year? We’ll have an information table set up for future baton twirlers! So please come by and say hello and if you have a school-aged girl (or boy) so we can see if there’s enough interest in re-opening a baton class in LaVergne.
From the city:
La Vergne’s annual National Night Out, slated from 6 – 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 3 will offer fun and more for residents of La Vergne. The event will take place at Veteran’s Memorial Park, 115 Floyd Mayfield Drive in La Vergne and is free.
Among the activities taking place that night are a softball game between the Police and Fire Department (6:30 p.m.), a tug-of-war between the PD and FD (8 p.m.) and a watermelon seed spitting contest.
Lifeflight is also expected to attend. A magic show by Copy Cats, inflatables from Jump, Jump Bounce and face painting by the Police Athletic League will also take place that night. Jack FM (102.9) will also be on hand that evening. Various vendors within the area will also be on site for the families.
There will be free hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, ice cream, snow cones, popcorn and cotton candy. The La Vergne Rescue Squad, Fire Department, FD and PD and Box 100 will be there offering visual showcases of their vehicles. U.S. Tae Kwan Do will do demonstrations that evening.
