Twin Cities Campus connects with neighborhood

August 14, 2018


Our Saint Mary’s mascot, Big Red the cardinal, danced with Twin Cities community members at National Night Out last week.

The Twin Cities Campus participated again this year in National Night Out on Aug. 7. The annual event encourages residents to hold block parties and get to know their neighbors as a way to build community and foster relationships that encourage crime prevention. It’s also a way to promote community-police partnerships and enjoy a Minnesota summer evening surrounded by friends and family. Some streets were closed for the evening south of campus so that the Phillips West Neighborhood organizations and businesses could engage with residents and provide treats, fun activities, and information.
