Neighborhood comes together for National Night Out

Jamestown Apartments in Seymour hosted a block party and health fair Tuesday for residents to celebrate National Night Out.

The event is a crime prevention and awareness day observed in communities across the country.

It’s the only site in Jackson County that takes part in National Night Out, encouraging its residents to come together to recognize the importance of neighborhood participation in the fight against drugs, crime and violence, said Myra Mellencamp, property manager at Jamestown.

During the two-hour event, people enjoyed free pizza and socialized with their neighbors.

The Seymour Fire Department and Seymour Police Department were in attendance to answer questions and interact with residents.

Children had the opportunity to play, pet dogs from K-9 campers and Flash the miniature therapy horse from Little King Ranch, spin a prize wheel and make a peanut butter pine cone bird feeder as an activity with the Jackson County Public Library’s Discovery Bus.
