Press Release, Albion Police Chief Roland Nenni

ALBION – The Albion Police Department unfortunately has to announce that the annual Orleans County National Night Out event scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 4, has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The event has been rescheduled for Oct. 6, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Because of weather concerns in October, the committee is considering a venue change for the location of the event. The location change has not yet been determined.

The National Committee for National Night Out has suggested the date change not because the mandated closures are believed to be still in effect in August, but because of the work currently being done by all the participants of National Night Out events.

The local event has over 50 participants that are civic organizations that help our community in every way imaginable. These organizations are currently working very hard in these uncertain times we are all facing because of the pandemic.

The Orleans National Night Out Committee does not want these fine organizations to stop doing the great work they doing for people in need in our community, to plan for the National Out event.

Our goal is to have the 2020 October event the best we have ever had.
