Night Out in West Jeff
By Kevin Dye
The Village of West Jefferson is hosting a special free community event to coincide with other National Night Out activities across the country.
The West Jefferson National Night Out outdoors event will take place from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 7 on Pearl Street, between Walnut and Center Street. The free event will feature live music with The Posse Band and free food and beverages, thanks to a grant from the Target Corporation.
“We will have safety information tables at the event,” Mayor Darlene Steele said. “Groups like the West Jefferson Police Department, Jefferson Township Fire Department, Drug Free West Jeff will be participating and Carol Beachy and West Jefferson Hardware will have a display of equipment that is designed to prevent home break-ins. I encourage the community to come out and enjoy a nice evening of free music and food.”
