THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (September 6, 2016) – National Night Out follow-up events provide opportunities for Township residents to personally thank the safety personnel who keep our community safe and to meet each other. When residents participate in National Night Out events, it accomplishes one of the first steps in crime prevention: “neighbor knowing neighbor.” The Woodlands Township Neighborhood Watch invites all residents to enjoy the following events.
