CHANTILLY, Va. — September 28, 2023 — The Virginia branch of Associa Community Management Corporation (CMC) promote neighborhood solidarity, resident safety, and police-community partnerships. Three of the branch’s communities experienced substantial turnout.
Firefighters from the Woodlawn Fire Department joined Associa Community Management Corporation
to help Olde Mill Condominiums stage their first-ever National Night Out community safety event.
More than 100 residents and visitors in Woodlawn, Virginia’s Olde Mill Condominiums attended their first-ever NNO event. It featured free BBQ, drinks, a bounce house, DJ, and community safety presentations. The Woodlawn Fire Department helped sponsor the event and dispatched two fire trucks that kids and adults of all ages had a blast exploring. Officers from the Woodlawn Police Department also attended and enjoyed dinner with the residents. The community is already planning to make next year’s NNO event even bigger and better.
"National Night Out 2023 was a phenomenal experience for more than 30 communities throughout Prince George County and Southern Maryland,” said Associa Select Community Services Vice President Darrin Cassidy, CMCA®, AMS®, PCAM®. “It was a wonderful opportunity for friends, family, and neighbors to spend a pleasant evening outside interacting with one another and the first responders who serve the communities in which they live and work.”
As the community management industry’s sole national sponsor of NNO, Associa works closely with its respective community partners through Associa Supports Kids (ASK), a community outreach program, to educate parents and children on the importance of neighborhood safety. Tens of thousands of ASK giveaway items are provided annually to NNO event attendees who attend both Associa-managed and non-Associa managed community safety events.
NNO traditionally takes place on the first Tuesday in August throughout all 50 U.S. states, territories, and on military bases worldwide. Texas and other selected regions celebrate the first Tuesday in October for heat-related reasons. Associa sponsored a total of 104 events in August and looks forward to working with many more communities on Tuesday, October 3, as part of Texas’ NNO. The goal of all the programs is to promote neighborhood camaraderie and inclusiveness and to help make communities safer, more caring places to live.
