National Night Out 2021

ST ALBANS CITY -- Cornhole, a bouncey house, and freshly-grilled hotdogs were enjoyed by hundreds of Franklin County residents young and old during Tuesday evening’s National Night Out in Taylor Park.

National Night Out brings local law enforcement agencies and organizations in public spaces to celebrate partnerships and community on the first Tuesday in August, and has been held annually since 1984, according to their website.

The St. Albans City Police Department donned their blues to enjoy an evening out with families playing lawn games, having conversation and sharing dinner from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. this year, a welcome gathering after last year’s event was cancelled according to Chief. Maurice Lamothe.
