On Tuesday, August 6, 2013 we encourage all Cleveland residents to join us in “Bridging the Gap: Neighbor by Neighbor” to put an end to violence in our communities. Recent events in our City have shown us that we need to get to know our neighbors, and that working together we can make our communities safer.

We can Bridge the Gap by getting to know not only our neighbors but our district police officers, firefighters working in the community station, and by becoming aware of the many services offered through the City of Cleveland and other agencies.

The Main Mayor’s Night Out event will be held on the site of the former Forest Hills Parkway Elementary School on E. 110th & Dundee from 5-9 p.m. on Tuesday August 6th. City of Cleveland youth will perform on Show Wagon; area poets will offer a mini-Poetry Slam; local churches will join forces for a Gospel Fest and the children can participate in face painting and many other activities.

All of these activities are free! It is a night filled with good information and good fun for the entire family! If you don’t reside in this neighborhood stop by one of the other locations listed below:

  • 1st Distrcit – Cudell Commons
  • 2nd District – Steelyard Commons, I-71/Jennings Freeway
  • 3rd District – Fatima Family Center, 6600 Lexington Avenue
  • 4th District – E. 65th & Fullerton Avenue

One of the themes of Night Out Against Crime is “lights on, crime off” so we encourage you to turn on your porch lights as we work to deter crime in our communities.

For more information on the activities, please contact the Community Relations Board at 216-664-3290.
