3rd Annual National Night Out


The Town held another successful National Night Out in Holbrook-Palmer Park this past week.

National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support and participation in crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community relations, and let criminals know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.  This community event allowed residents to connect with their neighbors, learn about crime prevention, enjoy some BBQ, and all kinds of family fun!  The event was a huge hit among Atherton residents and their families.  To view the gallery please visit
