National Night Out Kick-Off, a big success
The Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center was the site of “Stomping Out Crime...one block at a time,” the fourth annual National Night Out Kickoff that took place Monday, August 1. National Night Out originally began in 1984 with participation from 30,000 communities around the country. In 2010 that number nearly doubled to 50,000 communities across the United States.
