MT. ARLINGTON Spirits were high, the atmosphere was friendly and there were even complimentary hot dogs and hamburgers provided by Pub 199 as the township celebrated its 3rd annual National Night Out Against Crime at the municipal beach recreation area.

   Part of the 18th national event held annually on Aug. 6,

this locale was definitely geared for families, because that's what most Morris County towns consist of and that's what Night Out is all about keeping families safe. Some great DJ music filled the air while children got their faces or hands painted by Ree-Nee the clown, explored a New Jersey State Police boat (state police have jurisdiction over Lake Hopatcong), got a mini tour of the interior of an ambulance or watched a police canine demonstration.
  At one point during the evening, a small crowd gathered in front of the dunking machine to see who would be able to hit the target and topple a policeman or firefighter into the water! It drew lots of anticipation and laughs. There were relay races and other games for the kiddies on the beach organized by the local Girl Scouts.

 Also, various community organizations and businesses manned booths to talk to residents and spread the word about what they do. Some of them were the Mt. Arlington Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service, a volunteer service that assists the emergency management coordinator by providing additional radio communications during any disaster situation; Rainbows, a support group for children and teens who have lost a loved one; and Phoenix Karate studio.
