Jonesboro Announces Plans for National Night Out '06

JULY 25, 2006 - Posted at 12:07 p.m. CDT

 

JONESBORO, AR - Jonesboro city officials have revealed their plans for this year's National Night Out festivities, which are set for Tuesday evening, August 1.

Target will be the new corporate sponsor for this year's event.  "Since moving to Jonesboro earlier this year, Target has absolutely proven to be great community partners," said Mayor Doug Formon.  "They've contacted us and asked to help with several different community-oriented events and we appreciate their efforts."  Target is also a national sponsor of National Night Out. 

This year's event will include only one city-sponsored site, which will be located at the lot across from Target, at the corner of Stadium Boulevard and Highland Drive.  "We've learned over the past few years that we need to reduce the number of sites and focus on one centrally-located event," according to city councilwoman Judy Furr, who coordinates the event.  "This year we chose to move to the Stadium & Highland site, simply because it's highly visible and hopefully will attract more participants.  MBC Holdings have graciously allowed us to use this site and we're truly appreciative of Bruce Burrow and his staff for their cooperation."

Kickoff will be in front of Target at exactly 5 p.m. 

The event will have activities for all ages, and is free and open to the public.
