National Night Out

National Night Out
The "National Night Out" (NNO), is an annual crime/drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) (external link). Sanford, NC has been recognized for its superb NNO program.

We participated in the National Night Out celebration for the first time in 2009. Here are some pictures from the event:

Pool Party

Each year in May, the board sponsors a pool party to celebrate summer and the opening of the pool. There's always a ton of food and lots of fun!

Each year in December, Hawkins Run "lights up" in what has become an annual tradition in Sanford. Luminaries line all the streets in the neighborhood. In 2011 the Board of Governors' sent out a poll asking if the Neighborhood was still interested in continuing the Luminaries. The response was underwhelming. If you wish to express your opinion for this coming year, please e-mail a Board member.

Easter Egg Hunt

The Hawkins Run Easter Egg Hunt for the children of the neighborhood is always a popular event. Everyone has a wonderful time with lots of candy and ice cream sundaes!

Neighborhood Yard Sale

Twice a year, the board sponsors a neighborhood-wide yard sale. The board will purchase an advertisement in the Sanford Herald (external link) and place signs at both entrances. This is a great chance to clear out the clutter!

The next yard sale is planned for Spring 2010.

Please contact the board for more information.
