It’s kind of a big deal.
The 36th Annual National Night Out was held on Tuesday, August 6, 2019. In St. Paul alone over 37 thousand people attend events in their neighborhoods. It’s a chance for people to meet their neighbor and, in some cases, chat with local law enforcement personnel. Communities provide food and promote the special event to bring people out of their homes and apartments to socialize. A similar program in Minnesota is promoted in each county and is known as Night to Unite. There is great comfort in knowing who lives next door and our society feels more secure when folks band together with a cause – like safe neighborhoods. The addition of food ties it all together as a social gathering.
Many of our At Home Apartments communities took advantage of this national event to celebrate their residents and mingle with staff. Waterford Townhomes in Eagan invited local police to stop by for a visit. The Jade Lane Estates leasing and maintenance team served burgers on the grill. And BBQs were a big hit with lawn games at Oxford Apartments in St. Paul.
We’re happy to have a variety of rental communities in the Twin Cities metro and proud to see our leasing and management offices invest the time and energy it takes to sponsor National Night Out events in their neighborhoods. (Pictured above: the Jade Lane Estates maintenance team.)
