National Night Out: Tuesday, August 2

July 25, 2022

On the First Tuesday of August, the Horsham Police Department holds its annual National Night Out celebration. The FREE event, held at the township municipal complex, allows residents to explore various Police, Fire, and EMS apparatus with hands-on tours of police cars, fire trucks, and ambulances. Music, kids' activities, car show, display booths, and demonstrations are just a few highlights of this family fun event!

The event, sponsored by local town watch organizations, police departments, and businesses, aims to educate residents about public safety and strengthen the bonds between local departments and the communities they serve.

Since 1981, NATW has been dedicated to the development, growth, and maintenance of organized crime and drug prevention programs nationwide and has grown to include over 6,500 crime, drug, and violence prevention organizations. National Night Out, “America's Night Out Against Crime”, was introduced by the Association in 1984.

The first National Night Out was introduced early in 1984 with 400 communities in 23 states and 2.5 million Americans participating. The 2015 National Night Out involved 38 million people in 16 thousand communities from all 50 states.

Support Graeme Park: Become a Member

June 14, 2021

After a 13 ½ month closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have finally been authorized by the PHMC to resume doing regular Friday-Sunday tours for individual parties. While we are not yet allowed to do public events and group tours, we anticipate these returning in 2022. We have managed to keep up with basic utilities, maintenance, insurance, and other expenses through the closure with the help of PPP loans, a few small grants, and limited private rentals, but we could use your support now more than ever.

Will you become a new member or renew your membership in the Friends of Graeme Park? We’re offering a special “Post Covid” deal which will extend your membership from the time you enroll through the end of 2022. Your membership will allow you (individual memberships) or your household (household memberships) free tours of the Keith House and discounted or free admission to special events, which we anticipate bringing back in the spring of 2022. We appreciate your support and hope you will choose to support our organization, programs, and of course the beautiful and historic Keith House.
