National Night Out is held each year on the second Tuesday in August. Three Madison County communities offered activities for all ages. Events took place at the beach at Choctaw Lake, Cowling Park in London, and the Community Center in West Jefferson. First responders and citizens got to know each other in family-friendly environments.
