Oct. 1, 2013 - National Night Out

Gracywoods Neighborhood Activities
Each year, GWNA helps residents come together at "Block Parties" throughout our neighborhood.  The goal is to help neighbors get to know each other and watch out for each other.  To do this, we encourage each street to host a block party.

What is a Block Party?
A simple gathering of neighbors in someone's drive way or front yard. 
GWNA will provide crime watch materials and help you contact your neighbors.  We will also give the host of the party $15 for party supplies.  All you have to do is sign up to be a Block Party host, by sending us an email to:

Where will my Block Party be?
We hope each street will have its own party, and we will publish a list of all the block parties a week before the event.

In the meantime, please find your street on this list, and let us know if you would like to host the block party.  Send us an email to register your block party to:

You can also read more about Austin's Neighborhood Night Out activities and register your block party with the City of Austin.  This makes your party eligible for goodies and even a visit for our area police representative and fire department.  (To have the fire trucks visit your party, you must register before Sept. 13, 2013.)
