Vernon County National Night Out set for Aug. 3

Contributed by Bill Zirk, president of the Emergency Responders of Vernon County, and Luke Sellers, vice president

The Emergency Responders of Vernon County would like to announce the second annual Vernon County National Night Out event. The date is set for Tuesday, Aug. 3, from 4–8 p.m. at the Vernon County Fairgrounds. The event, activities and food will again be free.

After a very successful inaugural event in 2019 with more than 1,500 in attendance, the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic gave us no option but to cancel the 2020 event. If you missed us two years ago, this is a great opportunity for you and your family to meet members from local law enforcement, fire department, and EMS agencies.

NNO offers emergency vehicle displays, a live mock crash with the helicopter from Gundersen Air, and more. The inaugural event had more than 40 booths set up from area businesses, offering child-friendly games and activities, including face painting and the dunk tank.

The National Night Out planning committee has listened to your feedback and has a spectacular event planned for this year. We are thrilled to offer you this event and meet members of our community. Don’t forget to check out our Facebook page “Vernon County National Night Out” periodically for updated information. See you all in August at the Vernon County National Night Out!
