Sunland-Tujunga’s National Night Out (NNO) was better than last year. Our community didn’t only have hot dogs, we actually had meats, chicken, beef and pork thanks to Arnie Abramyan and Ret. Sgt. Herrold Egger who donated the meats and cooked’ em for everybody. Over all, S-T’s NNO was a success. People running for political seats showed up, LAPD made appearances and the STNC members mingled with the community. Let’s not forget the usual people from the apartments around the park who came hungry and in force.
The purpose of NNO is for the community to show their appreciation for law enforcement and our servicemen/ women. The cadets were serving food and Egger was cooking. Last year he was on duty and he was still cooking. He’s a man we are lucky to have in our community. Let’s unite our efforts and prepare for a better NNO next year. If everyone donates and brings something to NNO, we will have a more joyful and pleasant time.
S-T is moving forward toward a healthier and happier community. Change has come, and it looks like it’s for the better for our community. The positive vibes in the air and sense of community felt this year was very different and rejuvenating. As Arnie said, “S-T NNO is coming to the big leagues. Watch out. Phil Tabbi: you got competition next year!”
