Photo contest celebrates “National Night Out”



ANDOVER – On Tuesday, August 1st, in Andover’s sixth year hosting National Night Out in the neighborhoods, we had a record twelve (12) neighborhoods hosting block parties, including: Beaumont Place (Senior Center), Crescent Lakes, Cornerstone, Green Valley 2, Green Valley 4, Green Valley 5 & 6, Green Valley 8, 9 & 10, Teradyne, Tuscany, Cottonwood Point, Chateauroux and Cornerstone’s Whispering Pines.  Throughout the evening Police Officers, two K-9 Teams (Daimon & Hondo, Mickey & Thor), McGruff, Red E. Fox and Fire Fighters toured the block parties and met with residents.

“This year, due to the doubling of participating neighborhoods, a team of judges that went out and rated the parties in previous years was not used.  Instead, each participating neighborhood was asked to submit one photo that exemplifies the spirit of their block party, which will be shared on the Police Department’s Facebook page beginning on August 3rd.” Chief Michael Keller said earlier this week.

The top two Neighborhood Block Party photos that receive the most “likes” over the next 7-days will be awarded “First” and “Second” Place awards.  Winners will be announced on Thursday, August 10th.

“This year’s event was once again a huge success and everyone had a great time.” Keller said.
