Carroll Valley Night Out

(7/23) Carroll Valley Police Chief Richard L. Hileman, II reports that the annual National Night Out will be held on Tuesday evening, August 6th from 5-8 PM at the Carroll Valley Borough Park at 5685 Fairfield Road. This is a time set aside throughout the United States for communities to get together and meet their local policeman, firefighters, social service agencies and emergency responders. The purpose is to strengthen the relationship between the citizens and those who have taken an oath to protect them.

Bring the kids on out for an evening of fun, food, and information. Good Samaritan Lodge #336, Free and Accepted Masons of Pennsylvania of Gettysburg through their CHIP program will provide parents with child ID kits. “This is a really great program we are lucky to get,” said Chief Hileman, “not only do they take fingerprints, but they also make a CD with digital stills and a movie of your child and a take home DNA kit at no cost.” New this year will be cat and dog rabies shots at a cost of $10 and microchips for $20 provided by the Adams County SPCA mobile hospital and Adams Electric will conduct a high voltage demonstration.
If available, STAT MED EVAC will be landing at 5:30 PM. Kids are encouraged to bring their bikes and helmets and participate in a Bike Rodeo sponsored by Cub Scout Pack # 76. The Girl Scouts in the Heart of PA will provide games for the children.
