Register your block party for Aug. 6 Neighborhood Night Out

This year’s Neighborhood Night Out will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 6, and your block should be a part of the action.

This annual event is a great time to reconnect with neighbors, welcome newcomers on your block and promote an overall safer and active community. Block clubs around Cooper-Young will be hosting gatherings around the neighborhood, so don’t miss out.

The first 20 block clubs who register with the Cooper-Young Community Association by emailing before Aug. 1 will be eligible for up to $50 reimbursement for food and supplies (anything but alcohol – receipts required). Registered block club parties will also receive a goodie bag full of gifts and prizes and drawings will take place for special gifts throughout the evening.

About 10 block clubs have signed up so far, so don’t miss out.

The always amazing Central BBQ is again offering CY party hosts a special deal on barbecue packages for the evening:

•           10 percent off catering packages for 15+ people

•           12-pack for $25

•           6-pack for $15.

Please contact Central BBQ at 901-767-4672 (Ask for Elizabeth or Leslie) to place your order before Aug. 2 and mention the Cooper-Young Neighborhood Night Out to receive the discount. Also, let them know that you will be picking up your order at the Central location.
