Mid-afternoon one could have been excused if one thought Police and Fire National Nights Out events throughout McHenry County would be cancelled.
The sky cleared up, however, allowing the Village of Lakewood and other municipalities to hold their community relations events.
I went to Redtail Golf Course, which is where my village’s event was being held.
The Crystal Lake Fire Department had an engine on display at the front of the parking lot.
Some villages, such as Carpentersville, cancelled their event on account of the rain.
It was very nice to see everyone who came out, and their families. Conversation was positive, and uplifting. It was a very nice event -thank you everyone!
Next year, I hope everyone in the village is able to make it out!
