National Night Out is a gathering of communities all across the nation that bring citizens, businesses, churches, law enforcement - everyone in the community - together for a fun and relaxing evening.  In Monroe it has traditionally been held at Lake Tye Park in early August.  Police, Fire and over 40 vendor booths address all forms of crime prevention . Free hot dogs, pizza and water are provided as well as fun events for all, including bouncy houses and face painting for the kids, fire and police demonstrations, and K-9.

National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
The Rotary Club of Monroe is proud to partner with the City of Monroe and local police and fire departments to host the annual National Night Out event locally.  Organizing and supporting the annual National Night Out Against Crime has become a tradition at our club.  We have formed a solid partnership with the MPD and have embraced this program as a key component of the success our Rotary club's contributions to the community.

2500-3000 citizens join us each year…a real highlight in Rotary’s quest to give back to the community!
