National Night Out next Tuesday

There are many National Night Out events next Tuesday, August 4th.  Councilwoman Lisa Bender sent out a map of those in Ward 10.  You can eliminate the ones in the other neighborhoods to better concentrate on the Wedge.  These are the ones registered with the City by July 28th, there may be others.

Here is the link to the map.
