On Tuesday, Aug. 3, the Suffolk County Police Department’s 7th Precinct and the Mastics-Moriches-Shirley Community Library hosted a National Night Out event at the William Floyd High School football field, behind Nathaniel Woodhull Elementary School.
“The purpose of the event is to show there’s a partnership between the police and the community. There’s usually demonstrations like the EMS and fire truck demonstrations, and then we have vendors and fun for the whole family,” said Tara D’Amato, assistant director of the Mastics-Moriches-Shirley Community Library and an event organizer.
Last year the event was not held due to COVID-19. This year’s event featured vendors, demonstrations and an opportunity to meet elected officials and other members of the community.
