What type of community do you want to live in? I assume it's one where you know your neighbors or it's similar to the type you grew up in.
I gleaned ideas from some of my friends to see what they're doing to bring the community they want to their neighborhood. I love how intentional each of these women are!
Laura invited over the bus stop crew for pancakes on the last day of school.
Kerry coordinated a community yard sale and bake sale to raise funds for a family in need.
Stacy invited rising Kindergarten parents in her neighborhood over to her house for a potluck dinner. This was after a meet-up at the school playground (neutral territory).
Amy is working with two other neighborhood moms to host an end of the school year bash.
Casey hosted a Fourth of July celebration last year with a bike parade (loved it!) This year she's projecting movies on her garage door.
My parent's neighborhood has a monthly Trike Night and Halloween Parade (we crashed it last year!)
We invited our neighbors over for an Easter Egg Hunt. The boys planned it, had a budget, and I made a cake. Fun and simple.
