Greenville celebrates a Texas night | New


Residents of several Greenville neighborhoods took advantage of Tuesday evening’s warm weather and spent time getting to know their neighbors on National Night Out.

Activities ranged from barbecues and homeowners association meetings to potlucks and games.

Representatives from the City of Greenville, as well as the Greenville Police and Fire Department, toured many of the events and discussed topics about making the community safer while having fun.

Neighborhoods hosting events included United Presbyterian Church, Villa Fontana Fountain, 800 block of Sahara Drive, Cedars on Gamecock Circle, 10500 block of Shauna, Cedar Townhouses and Northgate Court.

Many neighborhoods were hosting National Night Out for the first time, and healthy turnouts were reported at all events.

Greenville has received several awards in the past that recognize the city’s national night as one of the best in the country for cities with populations between 15,000 and 49,999.

The National Night Out traditionally takes place on the first Tuesday evening in August. Due to the summer heat, however, towns in Texas are permitted by the National Association of Town Watch to hold activities on an alternate officially recognized date on the first Tuesday in October.

In addition to Greenville, the National Night Out was held in many other communities including Commerce, Caddo Mills, Rockwall and Royse City.
