— SELINSGROVE — Since 1984, communities across the country have gathered friends and neighbors with National Night Out Events as a way to encourage crime prevention. The public is invited to join the Snyder County District Attorney’s office and participate in the Inaugural Night Out Snyder County from 5 p.m. to dark Aug. 27 in East Snyder Park, University Avenue, Selinsgrove.

This free event will feature opportunities for all community members to learn more about the services offered through local and state law enforcement agencies, area fire departments and ambulance services, as well as the 911 Center. In addition, local civic, legislative, youth development, healthcare and education groups and community organizations are hosting displays, activities and games for children of all ages.
