Fairfield Harbour Hosts Inaugural National Night Out Tuesday, Aug. 6

Local Boating and Golf Community’s Neighborhood Watch Committee to Host Anticrime Event in Conjunction with National Campaign

New Bern, NC, July 31, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Fairfield Harbour (http://www.fhpoa.com), a residential boating and golf community located 15 minutes from historic New Bern, has announced that its Neighborhood Watch Committee will host the community’s first National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime,” on Tuesday, Aug. 6 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Fairfield Harbour Community Center and Firehouse, located at 585 Broad Creek Road. The event is part of a national campaign through the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), a nonprofit organization that works to develop neighborhood watch groups and other crime prevention programs to create safer communities nationwide.

Sponsored by the Broad Creek Council, Fairfield Harbour’s National Night Out will encourage residents to participate in the campaign by leaving their front porch lights on from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. to show support against crime. The event itself will feature live music, food and face painting at the community center.

National Night Out is a nationwide event that began in 1984 to raise awareness for safer communities and crime prevention. This year, more than 15,000 communities across the United States, U.S. territories, Canada and military bases worldwide will host similar events on the same night. This is Fairfield Harbour’s first time hosting the event.

“We are excited to host our first National Night Out,” said Mystre’ Van Horn, on-site community manager of Fairfield Harbour. “This event is an excellent opportunity for the community to come together and show their support and appreciation for our Neighborhood Watch Committee, which works hard year-round to keep our residents as safe as possible.”

“I am looking forward to Fairfield Harbour making National Night Out an annual event,” said Larry Knapp, president of the Fairfield Harbour board of directors. “Our residents’ safety and happiness are always top priorities at Fairfield Harbour, and this campaign shows the community’s dedication to protecting our neighbors.”

“This is a fantastic event for our community,” said Ray Harrison, chairman of the Fairfield Harbour Neighborhood Watch Committee. “We are excited to join in this national campaign for safer communities and we know that Fairfield Harbour’s first National Night Out will be a great time for neighbors and friends to come together to support the cause.”
