Lakewood’s National Night Out Held Despite Afternoon of Rain

Lakewood Police Chief Mike Roth strides to shake a village residents hand beside a mobile video game trailer.

Mid-afternoon one could have been excused if one thought Police and Fire National Nights Out events throughout McHenry County would be cancelled.

The crowd was starting to build as this 6:50 photo was taken.

The sky cleared up, however, allowing the Village of Lakewood and other municipalities to hold their community relations events.

Country music was playing and hot dogs and soft drinks were available.

I went to Redtail Golf Course, which is where my village’s event was being held.

Lakewood is served by the Crystal Lake Fire Department.

The Crystal Lake Fire Department had an engine on display at the front of the parking lot.

Around the circle with the Redtail Golf Course sign there were tables for some local businesses and Crosspoint Lutheran Church.

Some villages, such as Carpentersville, cancelled their event on account of the rain.

  1. 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!
