On Tuesday, October 7th, businesses and residents of Port O’Connor are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities throughout the Great State of Texas for Port O’Connor’s Night Out Against Crime. Port O’Connor’s 2nd Annual Night Out Against Crime is being sponsored by the portoconnorwatch.com and co-sponsored by the Calhoun County Sheriff, George Aleman.

All communities throughout the State of Texas have been assigned Tuesday, October 7th to celebrate National Night Out which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. Texas is the only state that celebrates a Night Out during October; all other states celebrate on August 6th. This was determined by weather. We all know how hot Texas can be during August.

Port O’ Connor’s Night Out Against Crime is designed to: (1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participation in the portoconnorwatch.com and in local anti-crime efforts; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and community partnership with Calhoun County Sheriff’s office; and (4) Send a message to criminals, letting them know neighbors of Port O’ Connor are organized and fighting back.

From 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. October 7th, residents of Port O’Connor are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights, visit and spend the evening outside with neighbors at the Port O’Connor Elementary School. There will be Fingerprinting for children, Hot Dogs and drinks for all, visit with local officials. The men and women of the Coast Guard will be present, along with the volunteer firemen with their Fire Trucks, and the Calhoun County EMS Emergency Equipment.

The Art Poster Contest will be judged and winners announced. First Place winner will receive a $100.00 Wal-Mart gift card, Second Place a $50.00 Wal-Mart gift card, and Third Place a $25.00 Wal-Mart gift card. Let’s all get out, meet new neighbors and have fun.
