Lufkin Neighborhood Observes National Night Out

Tuesday night was National Night Out. A time when many neighborhoods all across the country host block parties and picnics.

The major goal is to help neighbors get to know each other so they can help fight neighborhood crime.

In Lufkin, people living in the Englewood subdivision gathered for a watermelon social as part of National Night Out.

Neighbors say it gives them a chance to feel like one big family and to share neighborhood safety information.
