                                           National Night Out

National Night Out is an annual event designed to strengthen our neighborhoods through police-community partnerships. The goal is to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs and most importantly, send a message to criminals that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. It’s also the perfect opportunity to get to know your neighbors and your local Police Officers. See you there! For more information,

Beef 'N Bean Day

Date: August 12, 2017
Description: This annual Town celebration hosted by the Town since the 1924. Historically speaking, it was an event from the 1930's to World War II. The event stopped and began again in 1972 when a couple of people were roasting beef on one of Milliken's corners. Since this time, the event has continued to grow substantially each year. Beef & Bean Day has many different booths from outside vendors and events for people to participate in. In addition, there is a pancake breakfast, small parade, kids games, live music, barbeque, and fireworks which encompass a full day of many events. The Town is currently hosting meetings on Beef & Bean Day to get all of the interested parties engaged early in the process.
