Dear Editor: Camano neighbors gathered Aug. 7 at the Utsalady Ladies Aid Building for a giant block party to celebrate a night out against crime. Along with food and fun, information was available from local resource groups for making the community and neighborhoods on Camano Island safer places.

Participating groups were: Camano Island Fire and Rescue, Island County Sheriff Mark Brown and Sheriff’s Citizens Patrol, Camano Law Enforcement and support foundation, Island County Animal Patrol, Stanwood/Camano Amateur Radio Club & Amateur Radio Emergency Service, Camano Preparedness Group, American Legion, Camano Community Center, Island County Transit, Island County Chamber of Commerce, Windermere Real Estate and Utsalady Ladies Aid.

The Utsalady Ladies Aid members and I want to thank the neighborhood residents, the local law enforcement agencies and others for participating in this event and bringing to us important information about crime prevention and preparedness.

Thanks to everyone involved in making this first National Night Out celebration on Camano Island so successful.
