Thursday, March 30th, Sonoran Lifestyle Real Estate is inviting you and your neighbors to come tour 8 great homes, learn about “the ‘hood” and meet new friends. Neighbors Nite Out is from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. You’ll have the opportunity to get to know Fountain Hills, the homes on tour, the neighbors, and the neighborhoods.
The event is scheduled to coincide with “National Neighbor Day,” during that week. We always wonder who our neighbors are, and finding the time to introduce yourself is usually left to chance. But what if having the perfect setting to meet your neighbors gave you the opportunity to find a great neighborhood to live in? Whether you’re a social butterfly or homebody, getting friendly with the folks next door is an important part of living in a community.
Even though the exact origins of Neighbor Day cannot be accurately traced, the holiday seems to have popped up almost randomly in various places at various times, one thing is universally valid:
Neighbor Day is all about fostering strong personal connections that last the whole year round.
Every day can be neighbor day. There are no rules written in stone as how to celebrate Neighbor Day, and you are free to use your imagination:
- Reach out to your neighbors! Cookies, a bottle of wine, tickets you can’t use…they’re all nice ways of acknowledging those who share your block.
- Host a Block Party
- Spend more time outside…especially if you can do so in the front yard!
- Invite your neighbors to join you for one of the many activities we enjoy here in Fountain Hills….concerts, movies in the park, art festivals, Art on the Avenues (Thursdays)…there are a thousand opportunities in our wonderful community. Hint: Music Fest is just around the corner!
Anything can work as long it brings you closer to your neighbors, and allows you to get know them and the community better. Neighbor Day may only last for a day, but the effects are beneficial year round—and for years in the future!
