CENTERBURG — Even with a rainy downpour, the National Night Out Cruise-In, held at the Centerburg Elementary School Tuesday evening, provided opportunities for first responders to connect with the Centerburg community.
This event was the first of its kind in the Centerburg community, according to Sheriff Shaffer, who noted that the event was brought to Centerburg this year in order to spread the event around the county beyond Fredericktown, where it has been the past three years, including Tuesday evening. In the future, Shaffer said, he would like to see the event come to other towns around the county as well.

FREDERICKTOWN — The square in Fredericktown Tuesday looked more like a block party than a meet-and-greet with police and emergency responders, but that was how it was supposed to be.
Fredericktown’s National Night Out was about neighbors talking, as well as meeting the people who are there during those times when things may not be going so well.
