Block parties to light National Night Out in Cooper-Young Aug. 6

This year’s National 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. Last year, Cooper-Young moved National Night Out to October because of the summer heat, but moved it back to August this year to stay in sync with the national Night Out celebration.

There still is time to register. As of press time, more than 10 blocks in Cooper-Young had registered their parties. If you are interested in being a block captain and hosting a National Night Out party Aug. 6, ort want to find out who your block captain is, contact Liz Royer at

The first 20 block clubs who register with the Cooper-Young Community Association 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. 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, or 6-pack for $15.

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