Events in the month of August 2022

This is a great opportunity to get in front of the community of Goddard. 
  1. Booths should be open from 6:00pm until 8:30pm. 
  2. We ask that all booths and activities be set up by 6:00 PM.  You may start setting up after 4:00 in the afternoon.  If you are starting to set up after 5:00, you will have to carry everything to your booth.  You cannot drive or park by your spot after that time.
  3. Be aware that Santa Fe Street will be blocked off by the city and no cars will be able to park on this street west of the Cedar except for deliveries and Tanganyika Wildlife Park Exhibitors. We have to keep Santa Fe cleared for emergency traffic.  Main Street from Santa Fe to South Street will also be closed. 
  4. Selling any type of merchandise is NOT ALLOWED at this event. You may, however, promote your business and display merchandise. 
  5. Non Profits and Charities who wish to raise money at this event, MUST have prior approval by the National Night Out Committee. 
  6. The event is expected to be a family event that DOES NOT COST anything.  Businesses and other groups can have interactive booths, games, pass out information and have displays.  At the last NNO in the Park, we had between 2,000 and 2,500 attend. 
  7. Booth assignments will be made by August 6th and emailed to you as well as posted on different social media sites. 
  8. If you need electricity or water, pick that booth option and we will try to accommodate everyone as needed but it will be a first come first serve basis. 
  9. Everyone is asked to stay around and help clean up trash, clean and load tables, and put moon walks and other event activities away.  Some organizations have really worked hard to bring extra stuff, but it is difficult to get enough people for cleanup.  YOUR SUPPORT IS REALLY NEEDED TO MAKE THIS A SUCCESSFUL EVENT.
  10. Dinner will be distributed to all vendor booths prior to the food line opening. Please indicate how many people will attend to staff your booth so we are able to provide food to you. 
Vendor booths are $25. The $25 from each vendor fee will be donated to a non-profit who provides services to or in connection with public safety organizations. This non-profit will be designated by the National Night Out Committee.

Our Guest Speakers for August will be from NXTUS. 

NXTUS is a non-profit organization providing services to help entrepreneurs grow companies of significance.  The organization connects a community of mentors and resources, capital for startups and customers to support growth.  NXTUS works with entrepreneurs and communities around Kansas and would like to share about its programs and services for the benefit of the Goddard community.
Amber Dunn – Amber is a Wichita native and graduate of Wichita State University. She began her career at RSM Marketing working within several roles on the Account Service team, most recently serving as the Client Service Director. Over the past year, Amber has worked with a local startup in the personal wellness space and has a natural desire to support entrepreneurial-minded companies gain traction in their business.
Wichita Business Journal named her an Emerging Leader in the 2015/16 class  and she was featured on the Women Who Lead in Professional Services list in 2018. In her spare time, Amber teaches group fitness classes at Opti-Life, a local health and wellness center, and enjoys spending time with her partner Peter and their two big dogs.
Amber joined the NXTUS team in January as the Program Manager and will own the day-to-day management of the NXTSTAGE Accelerator and Pilot Competitions.
Ian Worrell – Ian joined NXTUS in January 2022 after 16 years in community banking at INTRUST Bank, with a focus in commercial and small business lending over the past 8 years.  Outside of work, he has been an active community advocate serving both civic and charitable causes.  His move to the NXTUS team provided an opportunity to combine his finance background and passion for community in a new and different way.  Ian will serve as Program Manager for the organization's capital-focused programs around angel investor members, corporate sponsors, and capital partners.  Love for Wichita and the South Central Kansas community and helping businesses succeed are what drive his passion.
