Celebrate Neighborhood Day

Saturday, September 21, 2019, 10:30 am

National Neighborhood Day was established to reinforce the relationships that form the fabric of our communities. It is a day of simple gatherings to share fellowship and fun while re-kindling friendships, welcoming new neighbors, catching up on each others' families, interests and needs. Bringing neighbors together builds connectedness, and connectedness builds more satisfying, self-sufficient and effective communities that strengthen our nation as a whole.
