On Saturday, October 18th Tempe residents will participate in “G.A.I.N” night. GAIN stands for Getting Arizona Involved in Neighborhoods
and is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness in neighborhoods.
Lori and I will once again be joining several of our neighbors
in participating in this fun event with our kids at Stroud Park in Tempe
. The Camelot Village Neighborhood Association
is involved and they describe the night as a partnership effort between the Tempe Police Department and Neighborhood Watch Programs, Neighborhood Associations and Apartment Communities. During G.A.I.N. residents lock their doors, turn on the their porch lights and spend the evening outdoors with their neighbors.
We walk to Stroud Park often and enjoy the playground, basketball hoops, large grass areas and of course the “sea shells” along the canal. I took this pic of the boys playing with a neighbors dog in the park last week. They love the park!
Come on over and join us at GAIN night! There will be food and a lot of fun people to hang out with. Feel free to bring a dish to share or to just come check it out and see what a bunch of Tempe residents are up to!
