Nassau County Legislator Joshua Lafazan (Woodbury) proudly joined the community in celebrating the recent return of National Night Out to Hicksville’s Broadway Commons.
Presented in partnership with the Nassau County Police Department, Lafazan’s colleagues in local government, the Hicksville Fire Department and local community partners in business, education and healthcare, this year’s National Night Out event featured a variety of family-friendly activities, live music by Beach Boys tribute band Endless Summer, giveaways from local businesses, free refreshments and more.
At Lafazan’s booth, Home Depot Syosset donated hundreds of build-it-yourself toy sailboats to give out to children and a raffle prize of a commercial tool set, valued at $400.
Held in thousands of communities each year on the first Tuesday in August, National Night Out is an initiative that seeks to promote “police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.”
In addition to the more traditional National Night Out offerings, Heart & Health Medical Group administered Moderna COVID-19 vaccines to eligible attendees who rolled up their sleeves.
“National Night Out brought communities across Nassau County together to celebrate the outstanding law enforcement professionals who have done so much to make ours the safest County in America,” Lafazan said. “I was delighted to join this celebration at the Broadway Commons and support a wonderful event that fosters stronger relationships between the police and the communities they are entrusted with serving.”
“We were happy to partner with Josh Lafazan’s office to participate in National Night Out 2021,” Home Depot Syosset community liaison Mike Gallo said. “It was an honor to help foster stronger relationships between the community, our neighbors and law enforcement. Through events like these we all work together in creating a safer environment for all to live in.”
