National Night Out in Norman County Set for August 3rd
Ada, MN — America’s Night Out Against Crime, otherwise known as National Night Out, will be back in Ada at the Norman County Fairgrounds on Tuesday, August 3rd. The evening will feature a free will pork tenderloin supper, ongoing displays and demonstrations, and appearances by a number of local law enforcement officials and first responders. Ada Police Chief Jody Bueng says in addition to their own officers, community members can meet and greet with fire department members, state patrol, conservation officers, and other area service providers.
As usual, Sanford plans to make a landing at the fairgrounds with their Life Flight Helicopter to cap off the evening as long as they are still available.
The attitude towards law enforcement has changed a lot across the country since the last National Night Out events were held in 2019. Bueng adds that the reason for National Night Out is for the public to get to know their first responders and those who protect them, and hopefully change some of those perceptions about police.
National Night Out will run from 5:30pm to 8pm on Tuesday, August 3rd. The Ada Area Chamber of Commerce will have a fundraiser meal featuring a pork tenderloin supper from 5:30 -7:00 p.m. in the coliseum with a free will donation. Monies from this fundraiser will go to the Ada Civic Improvement Fund, community events including Fun in the Flatlands, Old Fashioned Christmas Festival and other local events. Everyone is welcome to attend.
