=The Amsterdam Police Department, in conjunction with the Amsterdam Recreation Department, held the city’s National Night Out event Tuesday at Veterans Memorial Field. There were free raffles and giveaways for attendees, along with family-friendly activities. The city pool was also open for free throughout the event and open later than normal. Vendors were at the event selling goods and food. An outdoor movie screen was set up at dusk for a showing of “The Sandlot” to conclude the evening.
