Eight Stops Scheduled For Night Out Caravan
esc nno

Ready to observe National Night Out 2022 on Tuesday, Aug. 2, the caravan in Escalon has eight stops on the official schedule.

Made up of Escalon Police, Escalon Fire Department, Escalon Community Ambulance and a contingent of City Council members and city personnel from a variety of departments, the caravan travels en masse to all the stops around the city. A few minutes is spent at each site, giving residents the chance to interact with the first responders and city officials.

Some locations have potlucks, some offer barbecues, others have music and ice cream; each neighborhood gathering is open to those in the neighborhood that want to attend. The goal of National Night Out is to get people out of their houses and mingling with neighbors while also strengthening city-community relationships.

For Escalon, the first stop is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Aug. 2 and the last one begins about 8:20 p.m., as the caravan spends some time at each location.

The stops, in order including approximate times, are: Saron Lutheran Church, 1742 North St., 6 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.; Mission/Jordanolo area, 6:20 to 6:35 p.m.; Jonathon Drive, 2416 Jonathon, 6:40 p.m. to 6:55 p.m.; Carolyn Avenue, 1412 Carolyn, 7 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.

Stops four through eight are: Sophie Lane, 1553 Sophie, 7:20 p.m. to 7:35 p.m.; Palomino Court, 7:40 p.m. to 7:55 p.m.; Chablis Drive/Chardonnay Court, 8 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.; and rounding out the night at 806 Rosina, 8:20 p.m. to 8:35 p.m.

With a couple of police cars traditionally leading the way – and safely blocking the intersections – the multi-vehicle caravan goes ‘lights and sirens’ to each stop, signaling their arrival at each one during the evening.
