FREMONT – The Fremont Kiwanis Club held their annual National Night Out event Tuesday evening.
National Night Out Chair, Diane Brown, says the event brings the community and first responders out to bring around a sense of cohesiveness. This is the third year for the event in Fremont. Brown says they always have many activities for the kids in the community.
“Highlights we have tonight, we have the cosmopolitan club here doing a diabetes screening. A bike rodeo. We have photo booths, obstacle courses,” said Brown. “We have the Fremont Police Department here with their 911 Center. Sheriff’s Department doing the rollover, as well as Fremont Parks and Rec with their bounce house.”
Also in attendance was the Fremont Fire Department with their new aerial, Officer McGruff, and Katie the Comfort Dog.
Brown says the Kiwanis Club is a service club, and the goal is to always be present within the Fremont community.
“Kiwanis is a service group that is very involved in the community and the children of Fremont,” said Brown. “It’s just about making sure we’re visible as well as the police department and the fire department.”
Brown says the Kiwanis Club is always looking for more members, and they hold a number of events and activities each year.
