Hillcrest Mable Rose celebrated National Night Out, an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. The surrounding neighborhood was invited to Hillcrest Mable Rose for the event on August 2 for family fun and food. Bellevue Police Chief Mark Elbert also visited to meet with residents and discuss the role of the police in community safety.
“It’s been a great way for the community of Fairview to reconnect and having our own Police Chief Mark Elbert stop by was the highlight of our night,” said Lisa Summers, administrator at Hillcrest Mable Rose. “He spent special time with Joe Conrad, one of our residents. Joe is a retired Omaha Police Officer and watching their connection was amazing. Knowing how much it meant to Joe brought tears to my eyes and Joe is still talking about it today.”
