The Westlake Municipal Utility District No. 1’s Board of Directors is proud to have participated in the National Night Out event on October 1, 2019, which was hosted by the Westlake Community Improvement Association (WCIA) at the Westlake Civic Center on Franz Road.
“There was a sense of neighborliness, camaraderie and acceptance that has been building over the past four years but was obvious this year,” said WCIA President Annette Baldwin.
More than 270 attendees came to the annual event which honors first responders such as firefighters, police, constables and EMTs. Honored guests included representatives from the Westlake Volunteer Fire Department and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. The fire department brought a fire truck for families to explore while the Sheriff’s office brought K-9 officers, a SWAT truck and mounted officers.
Westlake MUD 1 board members were on hand to discuss the District’s upcoming bond election on November 5, and answer general questions related to the MUD.
First responders spoke with community members about a variety of issues, including women’s self-defense, child safety, identity theft and planning an exit strategy in the event of a home fire.
Entertainment included a live DJ, face painting, balloon animals and a hot dog stand. Beverages were provided by Westlake MUD 1’s Board of Directors.
Ms. Baldwin said the CIA is planning on hosting National Night Out again in 2020.
