The Key Largo community was out in full force for the Aug. 6 National Night Out event at Key Largo Community Park. The evening, which featured food and fun, gave community members the opportunity to meet sheriff’s deputies, fire rescuers, and others in the public safety field in the Florida Keys and share a friendly conversation. Capt. Don Fanelli said turnout was spectacular with families and children enjoying the evening. Joining the Sheriff’s Office were Florida Highway Patrol, Florida Fish and Wildlife, Key Largo and Tavernier fire and EMS. Many organizations were also on hand to give out little treats and share information.
