The month of August is here. Say it isn’t so.

I can’t believe July is over already. It has been a hot summer so far, but I’m not complaining. August brings us to several great events.

First, the 102nd Precinct-sponsored annual National Night Out Against Crime event. This year, it will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 6 at Victory Field from 6 to 9 p.m. This is a great family event for all.

The GWDC will be there again this year. Our organization will be giving out all kinds of goodies for kids and adults, too. Many other community groups have tables and plenty of freebies as well, not to mention food and music.

The 102nd Precinct usually grills throughout the event — hamburgers, hotdogs and more. Last year there was a dunk tank, a rock-climbing section and other activities for the kids.

Some people didn’t know that this event even exists and I am trying my best to pass the news to everyone in the neighborhood. So spread the word. It’s a great night for the community to get together.

At the end of the week, it is time for our Oldies Music Night at the Forest Parkway Plaza. Plastic Soul is our band for the evening. This musical night will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 9, weather permitting.

We were able to produce this musical event with some of the proceeds from our “Price is Right” fundraiser. We hope you can attend. Bring a chair or, if you are early, take a seat on the bench, They go fast.

Also Assemblyman Mike Miller and the Greater Woodhaven Development Corporation are co-sponsoring the MetroCard van visit. The mobile unit will be coming to Woodhaven on Tuesday, Aug. 27 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the intersection of Forest Parkway and Jamaica Avenue. At this event, MTA representatives will be on hand to answer MetroCard issues along with other services.

We are still trying to secure Mets tickets for a night out at Citi Field. We asked for tickets for dates in early September but now we must wait and see.

And don’t forget (how could anyone forget?) the Wonderful Woodhaven Street Festival on Sunday, Oct. 13, from 12 to 6 p.m. More on that next month.

By the time of our next bulletin, summer will almost be over. So take time to enjoy the lazy, hazy summer days while they last.

    It's fun while it lasted for the MetroCard until late 2023. 😆
