Neighbors Night Out Happening August 4th
Are you interested in hosting or helping to arrange for a Neighbors Night Out (NNO) event this year? Anyone can do it. The plateau area has been promoting neighborhood gatherings for the last 9 years to create healthier and safer communities. NNO always occurs the first Tuesday in August which this year is Aug. 4, and it’s our version of National Night Out, celebrated around the nation.
Our community will be stronger and healthier if we can build neighborhood solidarity. Life is more enjoyable if we know who lives beside us. Young children benefit from other pairs of watchful eyes, and some individuals have special needs and others have special skills. Just get to know one another, and improve the safety of those who live closest as well as your own loved ones. Enhancing neighborhood camaraderie and spirit is always beneficial to all concerned.
Since we're in a pandemic, gatherings are currently limited to 5 people and we should be several feet apart. So do what works best for you and your neighbors under these difficult circumstances. If you can't meet in person, maybe create a Facebook Community page for your neighborhood or set up an online meeting. Zoom, GoToMeeting, or GoogleMeet are all good options. The Next Door app is another way you can connect. You can also just post a sign in your area offering a place to gather or simply call a neighbor you have been thinking about. Let’s not have a pandemic weaken the spirit of our community. Do what works for you, join in the fun, and arrange for an NNO in your neighborhood.
LINCCK Civility • Compassion • Kindness is a plateau grown grassroots organization of volunteers that initiated NNO, and is all about promoting goodwill and better relationships.
