For the third year in a row, the Victory Heights Neighborhood Night Out (NNO) was a rousing success, with at least 170 name tags passed out (plus many attendees who didn’t wear one). Held again on NE 106th Street next to Victory Heights Park, the pot luck get together featured a wide variety of foods and desserts, including free ice cream bars. Two fire engines stopped during the two hour event, first Station 39 from Lake City stayed for nearly a hour, giving tours to the kids, and even a free ride around the block for two lucky children. A little while later Engine 40 from Wedgwood came by, coincidentally as their Battalion Chief was visiting who himself is a resident of Victory Heights!
Aside from an information/greeting table set up by the Victory Heights Community Council, there were tables about emergency preparation, a kid’s craft area, and representatives from the Thornton Creek Alliance.
Thanks everyone who attended this year (so many newborn babies too–Victory Heights’ own baby boom!), and the great volunteers who helped put on this successful event, especially Ann Forrest.
