Letter to the Editor: Event strengthens our community

To the editor:

I would like to say thank you to the Alexandria Police Department and Alexandria City employees who put forth a great effort to organize, set-up and tear down for the Community Night Out on August 7.

A second thank you to the local organizations who had display tables at the event. Positive events like this can influence public perception of law enforcement and other city organizations. I believe it strengthens our community. Everyone, including families and "staff," all seemed to be having a lot of fun!
