25 more ways to make your neighborhood a community

Now that the days are longer and the weather is nicer we head outside for garden projects,and bbq's . We also tend to see our neighbors more often and I know on our street we engage in conversation briefly on the side of the street.
We are very lucky in our neighborhood! We get together regularly for the annual Christmas Potluck, block party and impromptu bbq in the middle of the street. My kids always look forward to these events and I know they'll look back and cherish these memories.
That's why I loved this article from Sunset titled, " 25 more ways to make you neighborhood a community". Here are some great suggestions on how you can bring everyone together.
When you make your neighborhood a community it is also a safer place as well.
Take a look at the article and maybe choose to one of these this weekend.
Occasionally we'll bring a folding table out to the street and serve ice cream for the kids in the evening. I think that's what we'll do this evening as the weather here today in Seattle is to hit the nineties! YEAH!!!
