I enjoyed getting out to participate with so many of you at your National Night Out events! I loved seeing the number of my neighbors who hold a block party and get out to socialize with their neighbors. Thank you all for inviting me into your events and for the hospitality that you extended to me! I look forward to more opportunities like this to connect to my neighbors and get to know you! I even made it back to my own block’s block party in time to see the firetrucks arrive and take my children to explore the vehicle (I was fortunate that evening that the truck came to Xenia later in the evening!).
