Morton Grove, IL. – The community came together to celebrate National Night Out at the Morton Grove Civic Center on August, 7th.

Morton Grove’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 Morton Grove McDonald’s, strongly support the efforts of the Morton Grove Police Department.

“We are proud of our role in Morton Grove. We have always been involved in the communities we serve and we are happy to see the Morton Grove 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 Grimace, who was honored to attend the event to celebrate the culmination of the year-long crime prevention efforts in all the Morton Grove neighborhoods.

Free Vanilla Cone coupons were handed out to the families in attendance compliments of the Bear Family Restaurants.

The Bear Family looks forward to being more involved in the Morton Grove communities.
