National Night Out was August 1, 2017

Our annual event was a huge success with over 300 people enjoying the community evening at Bard Park. The NNO bicycle rodeo and water balloon toss were fun and entertaining. Daniel Barton was selected as the 2017 Neighbor of the Year for Stanfield. Congratulations to Daniel for everything you do for our community! The night ended with a family movie.

A HUGE THANKS to everyone who donated supplies, and their time to help out with the event which made this night so spectacular.  This entire event was made possible by community donations, and the Police Department is already looking ahead to next year’s event.    Hope to see everyone there!
