National Night Out apparently went well

Per a handful of letters to the editor at the Union County Weekly, it appears that the National Night Out in Waxhaw earlier this week went rather well.

Here's Lisa Thornton's letter in all its glory because it contains a number of specific details regarding the event:
Thank you to everyone who came out to support Waxhaw’s National Night Out!

We had an extraordinary turnout of more than 600 people. It is wonderful to see so many residents having fun while supporting our police officers, firefighters, EMTs and sheriffs.

This event could not have happened without the help of some amazing groups and people. Thank you to the Waxhaw Athletic Association who volunteered their time and the many other volunteers who made National Night Out successful. We are so grateful for them!

Thank you Cathy Murphy for being incredible at everything you do! Greg Mahar and Town of Waxhaw staff, thank you for everything! Thank you to our many vendors who stayed out in the heat making this a great event for everyone, Butts R Us BBQ, Bean & Belle Art Studio, Fuzion Hair Design, Chic Nails, Heart & Soul Productions, Your Event Source, Face Painting by Lisa, Tricky Rabbit Magic, UberDog Foundation, Snap Fitness, Progressive Movement Arts Centre, the Red Cross and the Waxhaw United Methodist Church.

We appreciate our sponsors, Five Stones Church, Verizon Wireless, Young & Polite Dentistry and the Medical Group of Waxhaw.

Martin Lane, Joyce Blythe and Phillip Gregory, thank you for coming out to support National Night Out. It is great to see elected officials showing their appreciation for everything our police officers, firefighters, sheriff and EMTs do. Waxhaw has the very best first responders!

Thank you to each and every police officer, every sheriff, every firefighter, every EMT for all that you do to keep us safe and protected!

This was such a fun event. We hope to see you all again next year!
