Dozens of Cottage Grove neighborhoods now host Night to Unite block parties since the city discontinued its citywide gathering in recent years. Thursday's event, which will have pizza, beverages and desert, will answer questions for residents interested in leading a neighborhood party and will provide the chance to register early.

The 2012 Night to Unite is Tuesday, Aug. 7. City police and fire personnel fan out across the city to meet and talk with residents at neighborhood gathering. The event is targeted at fostering community dialogue and building relationships between citizens and the police to help fight crime.
