Coventry in Spring TX celebrates National Night out!

Spring Volunteer Fire Department visits CoventryI live in the subdivision of Coventry and I'm on our Coventry social committee.  I have been on lots of committees for lots of different organizations but if you want to be on a fun committee choose the social committee.  We basically plan our Coventry subdivision parties.  We recently had our first very successful Coventry Night out.  We thought we were planning the event for the National Night out but when we checked with Target to see about getting some of their freebies we found out that Texas is the only state in the Union who changed their National Night out to October.  We had already mHanna Green celebrates National Night out in Coventryade the plans for the event so we decided to continue on; or so we thought. A little tropical storm/hurricane called Eduardo complicated our National Night out date.  We had the event planned so decided to postpone one week.  One week later we found ourselves in the middle of a much needed rainstorm but the weather cleared by late afternoon and we were on.

We debated on what kind of an event we would plan.  The purpose of National Night out is to strengthen neighborhood spirit, generate support & participation in anti-crime programs such as Neighborhood Watch; and heighten crime & drug prevention awareness.  With that in mind we scheduled 5 safety stations throughout the neighborhood.  Our neighbors could begin at the station of their choice.  They pA little firefighter for the Spring Volunteer Fire Departmenticked up a passport at the first station they attended and then had to have it stamped at each station to be eligible for prizes of five $50 Wal-Mart Gift Cards.

 Dane Hill had a station that served popcorn and snow cones.  This station was right in the center of the subdivision and had probably the most traffic of any station as the residents could stop coming and going to the other stations.  They gave out safety handouts to all the children who attended.

Marshbrook/Alderly had one of the most popular stations with a visiting fire truck from the Spring Volunteer fire department.  The kids loved it!  Not only was this station popular for the visiting fire truck; they were also serving lemonade and cookies.

Hot dogs on Hawn were a big hit at Coventry night outDane hill/Hawn was serving grilled hot dogs and ice cold water.  Precinct 4 Constables were on hand to fingerprint children at this station.  As you can tell by the pictures it was another popular station. 

Dane hill/Elmly served ice cold watermelon and Ice cold watermelon at Coventry night outhanded out Emergency Contact magnets.  The magnets had the Coventry subdivision contact numbers along with emergency contact information.

Post Bridge Cul de sac served ice cream bars and handed out information about RAD Rape Aggression Defense.  RAD is a physical defense program for women that offers no-nonsense practical techniques of defense.  RAD was presented in Coventry back in 2002 but many residents think it is time to have another course.  If 15 women agree to sign up Harris County Sheriff's department will provide it for free.

Ice cream on Post Bridge at Coventry night outEach household was allowed one passport.  With a subdivision of about 300 homes we had 50 passports handed in.  I think that is an INCREDIBLE success for our first National Night Out.   We were at the Post Bridge Cul de sac and it was a little bit out of the way but each one of those 50 had to come down our cul-de-sac to get a stamp.  For many I think it was the first time to come down an out of the way cul-de-sac but what a GREAT way to meet your neighbors.  We had people come walking, walking with strollers, on bikes and by car. 

Just as a side note.  That pretty chocolate lab is our Abby dog.  She wanted to attend our Coventry Night out also.
