We stopped by tonight's National Night Out on Maple St. tonight to see what was going on. Much to our surprise, A LOT was going on.
Cutting through the intense humidity was dance, barbecue and a giant crowd enjoying themselves. There was also a band and a huge thing that kids were inside bouncing around. And, of course, Health First was there should anyone find themselves wanting to sign up for Medicaid.
Mayer Bloomberg was also present. We missed his speech, but a neighbor told us that he emphasized the need to keep guns off of the streets to avoid future tragedies like the loss of officer Timoshenko.
Amen to that.
