The city of Rosenberg will once again participate in National Night Out Tuesday from 6-9 p.m. on the campus of Texas State Technical College, 26706 Southwest Freeway.
“National Night Out is a great reflection of Rosenberg’s strong community partnerships,” Sgt. Mike Bradley said. “Not only are we hosting a fun-filled event at TSTC, we also have members of our community uniting together to celebrate with their neighbors.
“Our officers look forward to seeing everyone out in the community on this night every year.”
