COOK – Residents sprinkled into the Cook Community Center grounds before the rain hit Tuesday during National Night Out. The event took place from 5 to 8 p.m.
Families visited with local law enforcement, ambulance and fire personnel while learning about their roles in city safety. Outside the center, Cook’s Country Connection entertained with a pop-up petting zoo. Just before the raindrops threatened to dampen spirits, the ladies with Friends of the Parks moved their free snow cone and cotton candy treat stand under the pavilion.
Inside, event attendees enjoyed tacos in a bag, cake, conversation and face painting.
Emergency medical information forms for people to place on their refrigerators and kids safety emergency information cards were also distributed.
