Viola Hosting National Night Out Tuesday

The Village of Viola is hosting a National Night out event Tuesday night at Miles Memorial Park. Organizer Judy Nelson tells WRMJ the reason she’d like to see the residents of Viola attend.

The event was canceled in 2020 for the pandemic and restarted last year.

Nelson asks that neighbors watch out for one another and report suspicious activity to police.

The event includes an appearance by the Mercer County police dog and a giant slip and slide arranged by the fire department.

Nelson says the event is a great chance to meet Troy Brock, the new Police Chief in Viola.
