Our local law enforcement agencies know how to throw a fabulous community party!  Rotarian and NCPD Chief Dan Foss and Nevada City Police Department (NCPD) fired up their awesome new grill and recruited Nevada City Rotarians to assist with cooking and distributing all sorts of goodies to kids and friends. Cathy had baked and baked cookies that were served up along with over 500 hot dogs provided by Nevada City Police! Plus NCPD’s cardboard police cars and mini handcuffs were big hitters as was Nevada City’s newest officer K-9 Ruby, a young bloodhound.
Crowds of locals joined in the merriment that came to a climax with the Kids Color Fun Run! Cathy and Robin joined in the fun run of the Colors on behalf of Nevada City Police and Nevada City Rotary. Kids of all ages ran the course throughout Memorial Park while officers and community partners shot out canisters and threw buckets of brightly color chalk on anyone around! Then a waterhose from a fire truck doused the runners! 
Nevada City Rotary is proud to partner with Nevada City Police Department (NCPD). Check out the fun photos at National Night Out!
A separate event was also planned for Truckee. National Night Out is an annual community building campaign that promotes community partnership with law enforcement to foster a positive relationship that helps make neighborhoods a safer and more enjoyable place to live. Local law enforcement hosted a National Night Out community event on Tuesday August 1 at Memorial Park in Grass Valley. The event was free for all ages and included a Kids Color Fun Run, live music, free food, games, public safety exhibits, and more! 
Next year's event will be hosted in Nevada City's Pioneer Park.
Established in 1984, National Night Out is traditionally held annually on the first Tuesday in August and celebrated across the nation with block parties, festivals, parades, cook-outs, and various other community focused events.
