National Night Out
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "I can't wait for our National Night Out event!" Rebecca said to her friend Miriam as she dropped her skateboard beside the front steps of her house.
 
2     "What's that?" Miriam asked, leaving her skateboard beside Rebecca's.
 
3     Rebecca pushed the front door open. "Every August, our neighborhood has a big block party. We get information about how to keep our neighborhood safe from crime."
 
4     "It must be fun to live in a neighborhood," Miriam said a little sadly. "I like having a lot of space around our house, but I miss having neighbors." Miriam lived in a rural area with houses more than 10 acres apart, while Rebecca lived in a fairly large subdivision.
 
5     "You can come to our night out," Rebecca suggested as she led her friend to the kitchen for a cold drink.
 
6     "I'd like that. What time does it start?"
 
7     "It begins at 6:00 P.M. at the clubhouse by the pool." Rebecca reached into the fridge.
 
8     "What will we be doing specifically?" Miriam took the soft drink that Rebecca offered her and popped it open.
 
9     "We'll have a cookout and pool party, and local police officers will come to talk with us. They will have a table where children can fingerprint their own identity cards. We will review our neighborhood watch program."
