La Grange Park, Ill. – More than 500 people came together to celebrate the 10th anniversary of  National Night Out in La Grange Park at Memorial Park.

La Grange Park’s annual National Night Out event brings residents together to build a healthier, safer community, generate support for anti-crime programs and strengthen police and community relations.

Bear Family Restaurants, who own and operate the La Grange and Westchester McDonald’s, strongly support the efforts of the La Grange Park Police Department.

“We are proud of our role in La Grange Park, La Grange, and Westchester. We have always been involved in the communities we serve and we are happy to see the La Grange Park community come together for crime prevention,” said McDonald’s Owner/Operator David Bear.

Festivities included entertainment, food, and refreshments. Attendees also enjoyed taking pictures with special guest The Hamburglar, who was honored to attend the event to celebrate the culmination of the year-long crime prevention efforts in all La Grange Park neighborhoods.

Community Relations Director for Bear Family Restaurants, Julie Travers, handed out free Vanilla Cone coupons for the families in attendance and had fun taking many pictures.

The Bear family looks forward to continuing to being actively involved in La Grange Park, and nearby La Grange and Westchester communities.
