On August 3, 2010, the Olin Heights Neighborhood Association held its 7th Annual Picnic in conjuction with National Night Out, at Hull Park. Setup began after 4:30pm. It began to rain around 5pm. OHNA members and visitors still braved the weather and began to arrive after 5:00pm. For the most part, the park shelter kept most everyone and everything dry. Here are some photo highlights of our event.
SCpl Tony Lopez and Andy Blackburn, OHNA President, encouraged neighbors to implement a "Neighborhood Watch," on each block. If you see something that isn't quite right at your neighbor's home, call the Police! Better Safe than Sorry!
The 2010 OHNA National Night Out Picnic concluded at twilight.
We had around 55 participants. We also had several distinquished guests which included: Alderman Mary Ellen Sprague, Alderman Jeff Felser, County Commissioner Helen Stone, Cpl Tony Lopez, Bran Anderson of Target. Good food, fun, and fellowship was had by all. Thanks go to all of the OHNA neighbors that participated and helped in making this event a BIG success.--------------------
