Rain and hail pounded Night to Unite and National Night Out events, Tuesday, Aug. 6 in Medina, Greenfield and Rockford. This did not stop neighbors from getting to know their neighbors at neighborhood block parties in Medina and community parties in Greenfield and Rockford. Area police and fire departments and city council members stopped at many parties to spread fire and crime prevention messages. Here is a sample of what happened at some of the parties.
