National Night Out was wonderful at Dutterer Park in Westminster. The Junior Women's Club did a superb job entertaining young and old alike. They had a terrific DJ who got people up and dancing, pizza, cake, cool pops, drinks and games with prizes. Everything was free! They had non profit organizations handing out freebies and sharing worthwhile advice. Door prizes and raffles too!
