The annual National Night Out Rally was held at the Brown County Fairgrounds in New Ulm Monday evening, and longtime New Ulm resident Helen Zangl was honored during a brief ceremony. Zangl has been involved with National Night Out since it began in New Ulm 16 years ago. She says she got involved because she believes in neighborhoods, and wanted to get neighbors together to make everyone safer. The National Night Out Rally included informational displays, kids games, food and live entertainment, and more. The annual National Night Out community picnics take place on Tuesday, August 7th this year.
