National Night Out is Tonight, Tuesday, August 6th
There are multiple National Night Out events planned in Emeryville tonight. Three events are planned by local home owners' associations at Oak Walk, Watergate, and Bridgewater. Two additional events are open to all Emeryville residents. One is at the Park Avenue Plaza, as previously mentioned on the Tattler and runs from 5:30 until 8:00 p.m. Additionally, there will be a public event at Doyle-Hollis Park from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Details below:
The Emeryville Tattler does not condone the placement of the Target logo on the notice above. The City of Emeryville has chosen to associate itself with Target for purposes of this National Night Out. By placing the logo on official City documents such as this, the City gives to Target Corporation a positive civic association and it's beneficial to the company from a PR perspective. Since Target has shown itself to be highly anti-gay in recent years in words and deeds, we think it's not well advised for the City to do this. The Tattler does not think Target should be rewarded like this for the past anti-gay work it has done.
