The annual National Night Out on Tuesday will feature activities at nine neighborhood sites across Danville. Opening ceremonies will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the parking lot of Trinity United Methodist Church, which is located at 409 Arnett Blvd.

City Council members and city staff will attend the opening ceremonies, and then visit several other neighborhood sites.

Reservoir Heights and its partner neighborhoods, which include Wendell Scott Drive, White Rock, Danville Estates and Mary Miles Drive, will host the opening ceremonies. In addition to attendance by city officials, activities at the host site include law enforcement and fire and rescue displays.

Commonwealth Document Management will offer free document shredding at the host site and later in the evening at select Night Out sites.

Here is a list of the other eight neighborhood sites:
• Danville House – 4-6 p.m., Main Street.
• Cardinal Village (Danville Redevelopment and Housing Authority) – 5-8 p.m., Cardinal Place.
• Danville Family Homes – 6-7:30 p.m., Joanis Drive off Richmond Boulevard.
• Grove Park/Southwyck Farms – 7:15 p.m.-dusk, Grove Park picnic shelter on Southland Drive.
• Longview Friends – 6- 7:30 p.m., Longview Friends Church on Longview Avenue.
• Shadowood/Beverly Park – 6:45-8 p.m., Grace Design Church.
• Old West End – 6-10 p.m., Sutherland and McGruder’s Alley.
• Westmoreland community/Cedar Terrace – 5-8 p.m., old Westmoreland school grounds at Sycamore and Spruce streets.

In addition, this year’s event will honor the origins of National Night Out by promoting the "Lights On" campaign. The earliest celebrations included a front porch light vigil as a show of support for neighborhood watch practices.

National Night Out started 32 years ago based on the idea of showing neighborhood solidarity by leaving front porch lights on for a certain amount of time on the first Tuesday in August. Danville Police encourage residents this year to honor the origins of National Night Out and to show their support for Danville's Neighborhood Night Out by leaving their lights on Tuesday evening.
