Community Night Out
Community Night Out is an annual event held on the third Wednesday in September. On this day, the Village encourages its residents to come together in their neighborhood to socialize with each other and representatives of Village offices.
In 2017, we had Eagle’s View Retirement Community, Twin Lakes Senior Villas, Hope Meadows, Golfview Village Apartments, Twin Lakes Condo Association, and the Concerned Citizens of Rantoul host events. Their events ranged from a small get together of neighbors talking with each other to full scale parties with DJs, bounce houses and even a pie eating contest!
The Rantoul Police Department and the Rantoul Fire Department have been active participants in Community Night Out since its inception several years ago and look forward to working with the community each year to enjoy each neighborhood’s festivities.
This first video is from the Golfview Village pie eating contest. Here is Sgt. Justin Bouse competing against a few good natured young women for the title of Pie Eating Champion!
The second video has Officer Jerry King and his K-9 partner Wyatt showing off some of their skills by “apprehending” Board Member Rich Medlen at Twin Lakes Condos!
