Town of Dumfries is not participating in National Night Out on 8/7/12

Instead, they are changing the date, for this national event, to 8/8/12. Why? Oh...there is a town meeting that interferes. It must be so important that it cannot be moved to another date. The National Night Out is the same time every year - the 1st Tuesday in August.

Other towns in Prince William County will be particpating - and the housing communities in Dumfries, but not the actual town representatives or police in Dumfries. Are they so above the rest of the nation (as if they are the only town to have business to conduct on 8/7) that they have to move this event to the day after?

Instead, there are very nice little messages on their website, www.dumfriesva.gov , geared toward the elderly and a nice, little picnic (on 8/8) and a poster contest, also scheduled for 8/8. Oh...and these supporting messages:

"Home > Town Council Meeting
ALL MEETINGS BEGIN AT 7:00 PM
MEETINGS OF COUNCIL ARE HELD THE 1st AND 3RD TUESDAY OF EACH MONTH UNLESS NOTED OTHERWISE.
For a copy of the agenda, click here. Individual reports mentioned in the agenda are accessible by clicking on the item in the agenda.
* Only 1 meeting is scheduled for the month October and December."

"Home > 2012 National Night Out
On Wednesday, August 8, 2012, the Dumfries Police Department is asking its Town residents to join them in celebrating the vital role of the community in supporting and working with the Department to prevent and fight crime. We are asking that communities light up the night against crime by turning on their outside porch lights from 7:00 PM to Midnight in a show of strength and unity."

Way to go against the grain, Dumfries.
