The Hawthorne community has an opportunity to come together and celebrate our SAFE city on Tuesday August 2 for National Night Out. This year's event will be held at the Civic Center beginning at 6 p.m. This annual nationwide event was established several years ago to bring neighborhoods and law enforcement together. There will be free ice cream and much more. You will be able to meet and greet some of the men and women who risk their lives for us every day. Stop by the Historical Society table for a blue ribbon to show your support of our people in blue. We have a large banner that reads: "Hawthorne supports our police".
