Residents of Van Buren County are invited to come to Lawrence for the National Night Out. Reserve Captain Rodney Bridgeforth of the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department told WSJM News what’s happening.
“It’s just an opportunity to come and get all of our neighborhood watch groups together and thank them for what they’ve done,” Bridgforth said.
While the picnic is focused on neighborhood watch groups, Bridgeforth made it clear that any resident of Van Buren County is welcome to attend and encouraged to bring a bag of chips or a dish to share. The event at 6 p.m. at the Lawrence Park Pavilion.
