Minnesota’s Night to Unite is scheduled for next Tuesday, August 2nd. The Wayzata Crime Prevention Coalition’s (WCPC) Night to Unite luncheon at the Wayzata Country Club kicks off the day at 12:00 noon. The public is invited and it is always a great, well attended event. The WCPC will present the annual Jim Fish Award for crime prevention. Chief Mike Risvold will speak about some of the more interesting and sometimes bizarre cases that the department has worked on in the last year. The cost is $20 and reservations can be made by contacting the Wayzata Chamber of Commerce at 952-473-9595. Because the country club is closed on Monday, reservations need to be made to the Chamber office by noon on Friday, July 29th.
On Tuesday evening beginning at 6:00 PM, local police officers, firefighters, elected officials, city staff, and McGruff will make neighborhood visits throughout Wayzata and to several parks in Long Lake. Neighborhood block captains in Wayzata have received schedules for estimated times of the visits. The stops in Long Lake include three parks – Harden Park at 6:20 – Dexter Park at 6:55 – Holbrook Park at 7:20. This is a great opportunity to ask questions of your police, fire, city staff and elected officials. Most of all, it’s a great time to connect with your neighbors as a reminder to look out for one another. We look forward to seeing everyone next Tuesday for Night to Unite!!!
