National night out

August 03, 2021

 Ellensburg, Washington (August 4, 2021) – National Night Out took place on August 03, 2021. The objective of this nationwide annual community-building campaign is to promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. This year Court Advocates for Children was invited to take part in the community-building event in Ellensburg at Memorial Park, in Kittitas at Gazebo Park, and in Cle Elum at City Park. In each location staff, board members, and volunteers from Court Advocates for Children supported local law enforcement in bringing police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.  

The local police department in all three locations (Ellensburg, Cle Elum, and Kittitas) provided free food, safety demonstrations and activities, visits from emergency personnel, community partners, and much more. Court Advocates for Children enjoyed handing out pinwheels, painting rocks, and engaging with all those who attended. This event provided an excellent opportunity for Court Advocates for Children to promote camaraderie and awareness among the many civic groups and community members attending.
