DOUGLAS COUNTY — Communities in Douglas County will gather Tuesday, Aug. 2, to celebrate National Night Out.

The annual event is designed to strengthen communities and promote stronger relationships between neighbors, law enforcement, firefighters and emergency medical responders. All events are free and open to the public. They include:

  • Our Saviors Lutheran Church, 1924 Wyoming Ave. from  6-8 p.m. in the parking lot.
  • Twin Ports Outreach, 1326 Pine Ave., 5-7 p.m.
  • 4 Corners Store, 6383 S. County Road A, town of Superior, from  5-7 p.m.

Visitors to the 4 Corners Store can expect a free meal of hot dogs, brats, chips, soft drinks, candy and popcorn, as well as yard games and a dunk tank fundraiser for the Superior School District’s Angel Fund. There will be fire trucks from three surrounding departments to explore as well as local dirt track race cars to look at. Members of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will also be represented.
“It should definitely be fun,” said Raquel Stockey, owner of the 4 Corners Store.
