Burke About 100 people attended a pizza and movie night during National Night Out at
the Cardinal Estates community in Burke on Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2017. After visits with police from the West Springfield Station and firefighters from the Burke Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department (Station 14), the crowd enjoyed pizza, chips, and sodas, then watched the movie "Toy Story." Also on hand was Del. Eileen Filler-Corn (D-41).
National Night Out is an annual neighborhood based crime and drug prevention event that shows neighborhood spirit and strengthens partnerships with local police and fire departments.
"Here in Cardinal Estates we put on National Night Out to welcome all of our local police officers and fire and rescue to promote safety here in the neighborhood and get people active in the community. If you see something, say something,"
said organizer Amanda Fox, Captain of the Neighborhood Watch and Vice President of the Cardinal Estates Home Association.
