Community Night Out with High Notes Featuring the Alabama Symphony Orchestra to be Held Tuesday, October 11, 2016


We are excited to announce that the Alabama Symphony Orchestra will return to the City Hall Green for a free public concert conducted by Christopher Confessore. As we look forward to the anniversary of the move to our new City Hall and Police Department, we are celebrating our Vestavia Hills Police and Fire Departments by joining the High Notes concert to the annual Community Night Out (CNO) event. The CNO activities will begin at 5:30pm and the High Notes concert will begin at 6pm with the entire event lasting until around 8pm. Details about the event may be found on the City’s website at , and new information will be added daily to the Facebook event page


The Vestavia Hills Police Department and Vestavia Hills Fire Department, along with a host of community partners, have been holding Community Night Out as an extension of the National Night Out and the Project 365 campaign since 2011. National Night Out is a campaign to connect public safety employees with the communities they serve, and Project 365 challenges the community and public safety sector to partner to conduct a chosen initiative in efforts to positively impact the public throughout the year. CNO features a public safety expo, presentations and information on special issues, and of course, lots of family fun with free food and kids’ activities. This year’s Project 365 is multifaceted to include our partners at the Jefferson County & Secret Service Financial Crimes Task Force and Help the Hills Foundation. Our goal focuses collective efforts on bringing awareness to the prevention of identity theft and personal security as well as information to support efforts to prevent drug abuse among the youth in our community.


The Community Night Out event will feature a first responders expo, victims remembrance wall, officers memorial display, participatory art, Project 365 identity theft workshop, and plenty of goodies and free food and refreshments from our sponsors. Free t-shirts will be available while supplies last, with donations accepted for Multiple Sclerosis & Cystic Fibrosis, as multiple members of our first responder family has been touched by both diseases. Blue lights for residents to show their support of the National Night Out campaign will also be available for purchase at CNO. Family fun activities are anticipated to include face painting, bounce houses, mug shots, balloons, and a chance to meet our K-9 teams and “Hero” the Fire Dog.


A section of the front parking lot will be reserved for media parking. Please contact Melissa Hipp at 205-978-0152 (639-4418 the day of the event) to advise if power or other assistance is needed.
