Week of August 23rd:
We had a block party on our street last Saturday night. It was the easiest neighborhood party that we have ever thrown! All we did was buy a variety box of ice cream (drumsticks, ice cream sandwiches, etc) and we passed out the invitations.
We had 10 of the 14 families on our street show up! -- including a family that has been on the street for 2 years and we had never met them. We said that we would gather from 6:30 - 8pm, but at 9pm most folks were still hanging out. And because of the common challenges of this season, I found that the conversations went to a deeper level than normal.
I sincerely believe that all across our city our neighbors are ready to engage, and they are just waiting for someone to initiate. Will you be that neighbor for your street?
This is a perfect time for the easiest way you’ll ever love your street!
