Night to Unite

On Tuesday, August 7th, the City of Eden Prairie is hosting “Night to Unite,” a summer evening dedicated to celebrating and strengthening the commitment to a safe community. This is an opportunity to put together a neighborhood celebration, turn on the front porch lights, gather with neighbors and friends, get to know one another, catch up on things, play some games with the kids, enjoy a few hot-off-the-grill favorites and build a sense of community. Neighborhood representatives are asked to register their Night to Unite event, so representatives from the Eden Prairie Police and Fire Departments, as well as several City officials, can stop by to visit many of the local celebrations that evening. In conjunction with the Night to Unite event, City officials also collect donations for PROP. Food shelf items are typically low in the summer months and the City of Eden Prairie encourages residents to incorporate food drives with the neighborhood events – the neighborhood with the largest volume donation overall receives an ice cream social hosted by the Police and Fire Departments!
