(8/8/12) Monroe County officials celebrated the anniversary of National Night Out with more than four-hundred and fifty area residents in Tomah's Winnebago Park on Tuesday night.
Coordinated by Tomah Memorial Hospital's Community Outreach Department, it was the tenth year that residents got a chance to meet law enforcement officials and learn ways to make their community safe. Community Outreach Health Educator Kasey Bloom said the event continues to grow due to support from various organizations and county–wide emergency services.
Over two-hundred-thirty children learned bike safety during the Tomah Police Department's Bike and Blading Safety Expo.
Sparta resident Monique Tovar (toe-verr) was the winner of the big three-night camping package at JellyStone Park in Warrens.
Residents also helped the local Neighbor for Neighbor Food Pantry by donating just over one-hundred pounds of food during the evening.
