National Night Out in Canaan


Tuesday, August 6, 2019 at 5 PM – 8 PM
Mascoma Regional Valley High School

National Night Out is held on the first Tuesday of August across the country. The goal of National Night Out is to enhance the sense of community.

“The best way to build a safer community is to know your neighbors and your surroundings. National Night Out triumphs over a culture that isolates us from each other and allows us to rediscover our own communities.”

This year, the Canaan Police Department will be hosting a block party type celebration at Mascoma Valley Regional High School.

There will be games, raffles, police cars and other town vehicles, food vendors, and tables from many town departments, clubs and organizations.

Mascoma High School’s Radio Station X101 will be on location providing music and fun!

We’re looking forward to a fun night out with the community!
