Hey, neighbors! Have I told you lately that I appreciate you? Well, I do! Thank you for being my neighbor and giving me lots tips to write about here on Wallyhood!
You, too, can appreciate your neighbors during the 18th annual Neighbor Appreciation Day held this year on February 11. It’s a day in Seattle when we interact with the fine folks, groups, and businesses who make this neighborhood a great place to live. The city has lots of planned activities, which you can find here. There are several ways to participate:
- Plan an activity for your neighborhood such as a block party, potluck, or work party. The website, www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/
neighborday, provides ideas, tools, resources, and templates to help community members organize an activity. Once organized, the event can be posted to the online calendar at www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/ neighborday/eventsubmit.htm(the submission can be made public or private).
- Send out Neighbor Appreciation Day greeting e-cards to your neighbors. The selection of e-cardsfeature artwork from past winners of the Neighbor Appreciation Day Student Art Contest.
- Share a story or two about your favorite neighbors. Community members can visit the Neighbor Appreciation Day website to post stories about great neighbors or their neighborhood.
- Attend one of the many community activities listed on the online calendar. Seattle Fire stations, Seattle Parks and Recreation community centers and pools, and other organizations have special Neighbor Appreciation Day events and work parties planned.
Our neighborhood doesn’t yet have activities planned, but we’ll keep you posted once we hear of any organized events in Wallingford.
