Glassell Park's National Night Out was a terrific success. The community decided early on that it wanted to develop its own organic version of National Night Out, and community members struck out on their own. I was pleased to attend the event, meeting at Juntos Park (pictured) and seeing the great participation from LA Bridges, our gang intervention program (they must have had 30 people there!) and Fire Station No. 50, who led the parade with their engine and played games with kids in attendance. Congratulations to all who attended.
