Savage celebrated Night to Unite on Tuesday with hundreds of people mingling with their neighbors across the city.

The annual event is meant to help local residents celebrate and strengthen the city’s commitment to a safe community.

Kathy Natyshak of Savage has lived in her home for eight years and has attended several Night to Unite events.

“It’s a great way to get to know near and far neighbors,” she said.

She encouraged others to participate in the future if they can.

“You never know when you’ll need a neighbor,” she said.
