National Night Out events planned for Menlo Park and Atherton with an appearance by the Bell Brothers a highlight
National Night Out is a nationwide, community-building campaign that promotes police-resident partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and crime prevention. This year’s National Night Out events will be held Tuesday, August 6. Police staff will attend each National Night Out registered neighborhood event to meet and mingle with residents and hand out giveaways.
A special treat for Willows neighborhood residents is an appearance by the Bell Brothers from 5:00 to 7:30 pm at Cafe Zoë (1929 Menalto Ave.). Scott Bell is a long-time resident of Menlo Park. The duo’s original material expresses sentiments of life, love and struggles grounded in a range of musical expressions from Country to Americana to Rock.
Another Menlo resident, Nancy Tompkins, will also be at the Cafe doing a reading from her new children’s book, A Biscuit for Chocolate.
