Mark your calendars for National Night Out, an annual event that promotes neighbors knowing neighbors and working together to prevent crime. This year the Burleson Heights and Burleson Parker neighborhoods will celebrate on Oct. 7.
Turn on your porch lights, bring a flashlight and join your neighbors for an outdoor celebration in your area. Officer Gabriel Guillen, our Austin Police Department District Representative, has been invited to attend both events, and some District 3 City Council candidates might also drop by.
Burleson Heights: Meeting and light snacks, 6-8:30 p.m., 2809 Ware Road
Burleson-Parker: Potluck supper, 6-9 p.m., 3201 Laguna Drive
