Residents of The Parks of Stonecrest celebrated National Night Out on Aug. 1 with a poolside barbecue, which was held at the community’s clubhouse. Stonecrest City Council member Jimmy Clanton, who lives in the community, and organizers of the event welcomed Stonecrest Mayor Jason Lary to their celebration. Like many other National Night Out events that were held throughout DeKalb County and the metro Atlanta area, residents in the Stonecrest community and law enforcement officials had a chance to meet up and learn about available resources. National Night Out was first established in 1984 and is held the first Tuesday in August. Photos by Glenn L. Morgan.
