It’s time to whip up a hotdish and gather with your neighbors — Tuesday is Night to Unite.
Neighborhoods across town will hold get-togethers Tuesday evening, which is also National Night Out.
“It’s an opportunity for (neighbors) to get to know each other and discuss any issues they might have in their neighborhoods,” Red Wing community service officer Tim Bohmbach said.
Night to Unite is a state program, similar to National Night Out but “with more of a local theme,” Bohmbach said.
At the local meetings, police officers, firefighters, council members, the mayor and others could make appearances to discuss with residents any problems or comments they might have.
It’s also a time for police especially to focus on crime issues.
“It’s a partnership for police and neighborhoods to help with crime prevention,” Bohmbach said.
