District's National Night Out
Yesterday, the District of Columbia National Night Out Kick-Off was held in Ward 5 at the Trinidad Recreation Center. Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray, Councilman Harry “Tommy” Thomas, Representative Eleanor Holmes Norton, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Ron Machen, Fire/EMS Chief Dennis Rubin, and MPD Chief Cathy L. Lanier led District and federal officials in attendance. It was a wonderful event to bring out the community for enhanced public safety awareness. Several federal and District agencies provided invaluable information to citizens.
Ms. Fayette Vaughn-Lee, 5D Community Coordinator did a masterful job arranging displays, games, and activities for children. The highlight of the evening was not only the various youth groups that performed, but also the magnificent choir from New Samaritan Baptist Church. I also greatly thank Councilman Thomas for hosting the food and refreshments.
A special and high shout-out has to go out to Ms. Anji Corley, Midday Host at WPGC.
A great National Night Out in Ward 5.
