Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods invites groups, businesses, and residents to participate in Neighbor Appreciation Day on February 13, 2016. This could be a good time to organize a street-clean-up party, a coffee or dessert event, or a play day for children while the adults meet to get better acquainted. All statistics point to knowing-your-neighbors as the best way to get organized for emergencies and the best way to be a Blockwatch for safety.
Neighbor Appreciation Day began more than twenty years ago as a way to reach out, create new friends, and express thanks to our neighbors who make Seattle such a great place to live. Anyone can participate – from planning an event to inviting your neighbor for coffee. Here are some ways you can be a part of Neighbor Appreciation Day:
- Participate in the activities happening or add your own event.
- Check out the list of ideas on how you can celebrate.
- Plan an event using the templates.
