NFCCA sponsored National Night Out (NNO) on Tuesday evening, August 2, 2022. The free event was held at Forest Knolls Swimming Pool.
Event organizers Sharon Canavan and Julie Whitcomb were happy it was a warm and clear summer evening. Over 100 neighbors attended NNO. Everyone enjoyed swimming, chatting with friends, meeting new people, ordering dinner from Shouk food truck, listening and dancing to live music of the classic rock band, “Philip and Flatheads,” winning treats from the pool snack bar with raffle tickets, and devouring delicious sno-cones!
Local politicians and candidates who attended NNO included Charlotte Crutchfield, Will Jawanda, Laurie-Anne Sayles, Sarah Wolf, Legislative Director for Tom Hucker, and staff from Bonnie Cullison’s office.
Special Thanks to Jen Ritchotte, President of Forest Knolls Pool, for all of her help before and during NNO; Walter Medrano, for loaning his sno-cone machine and making sno-cones during the especially busy times; Jacquie Bokow, for finding and hiring the great band; Sondra Katz, Robin Loube, Ema Perez, and John Prochilo for greeting people, handing out raffle tickets, moving tables and chairs, helping to make sno-cones, and taking photos; Julie Whitcomb, for running the raffle for treats from the pool snack bar; Sharon Canavan, the Sno-Cone Lady, for making sno-cones for happy kids and adults and working tirelessly during the evening; and the awesome Lifeguard Staff for helping set up and clean up while we all disrupted their routine!
Thank you to everyone who came to NNO! See you Tuesday, 1 August 2023! ■
