Your view: Thanks for a successful Night Out


The Wilkes-Barre Crime Watch Coalition would like to thank all of those that came out and supported our enjoyable and successful National Night Out event Aug. 5, which focused on bringing the police and community together.

We would also like to thank all of the businesses and other groups that supported the event through monetary, food donation and volunteer help. Without your assistance none of this would have been possible.
