Join the Delegates and Me August 6th at the Beltsville Police Station
The delegates and I, along with Council Member Tom Dernoga, hope to see you Tuesday night, August 6, 6–8 pm, for the annual National Night Out. It will be held at the police station at Sellman and Montgomery Roads. Everything is free, including food, drinks, and fun activities for families. It's a great opportunity to strengthen the relationship between the police department and the community, see friends and neighbors, and display Beltsville's commitment to keep crime out of our neighborhoods.
