The police and fire departments of Daisetta and Dayton hosted National Night Out events Tuesday evening, Oct. 1, but with apologies, we could not find where to squeeze it into the newspaper that week or this one.
Daisetta’s took place at the Hull-Daisetta VFD and a good crowd turned out for it. The air ambulance from PHI Air Med in Conroe proved be a big attraction for the kids. They had an obstacle course, ring toss game, bounce houses and other activities. County commissioners Greg Arthur and Bruce Karbowski attended, along with Sheriff Bobby Rader and Constable Leslie Hulsey.
Daisetta Police Department Chief Kelvin Burks and Fire Chief Memo Gomez were there, of course, as were members of their departments.
Dayton held its event at the Community Center, and it also had a good crowd turn out.
These events were to give residents an opportunity to meet the men and women of their police and fire departments, and meet each other, too.
At Daisetta, Commissioner Arthur made a few brief remarks and told the crowd that policing is not the job of law enforcement alone, but of the whole community.
The City of Liberty held its National Night Out a bit early, back in August.
