The Colony Honored for National Night Out
 
The Colony was presented with an award by the National Association of Town Watch on Monday December 18, 2000, for its participation in the 17th annual National Night Out.  This marks the 4th year in a row the City of The Colony was selected as a National Award Winner, placing 29th in the US for cities less than 30,000 population.

The Honorable Mayor Bill Manning accepted the award on behalf of The Colony from Chief of Police Joseph T. Clark and Officer Mark Phillips of The Colony Police Department.  The award cermony was held at 7:00pm in the City Council Chambers of the main Administrative Offices (City Hall) at 6800 North Main Street.

The Colony began its participation in National Night out in 1996 with the goal of increasing citizen involvement in their neighborhoods, and increasing the number of active neighborhood watch groups.  That year The Colony had seven active watch groups with five neighborhood parties.  In 2000, The Colony has grown to include fifty active watch groups, and had twenty-nine block parties.

It is our citizenís involvement in their neighborhoods and their city which has earned this recognition.
