On Tuesday, Aug. 6, neighborhoods throughout Spring Valley will join forces with thousands of other cities nationwide for National Night Out — a community crime and safety event sponsored by National Association of Town Watch and Target stores.
Project Success of Eastern Bureau County and Spring Valley Police Department, under the direction of chief Kevin Sangston have teamed together for the 18th consecutive year to host this citywide public safety initiative.
“It is a wonderful opportunity for neighbors to come together and to send a strong message that crime will not be tolerated in our communities,” commented Sangston.
Bureau County sheriff John Thompson and state Rep. Frank Mautino (D-Spring Valley) also are partnering in the venture by providing food and drinks — demonstrating their support of an evening which promotes civic awareness and strengthens partnerships between neighborhoods and local law enforcement.

Coveny Swimming Pool. Following swimming, hotdogs, chips and drinks will be served to those in attendance. As a special treat, freeze pops will be supplied by Dakota Street Insurance.
