A few weeks before Memorial Day 2022 me and my neighbor, Wanda, were talking about how we would like to get to know our neighbors better. We came up with the idea of having a block party. My neighbor made up a flyer and I made up a sign to let the neighbors know when, where and what time together. We made it a potluck, lunchtime gathering. I think about 20 people came to it and we all had a great time. Wanda and I are talking about throwing another one after Labor Day. I am hoping to widen the circle of invites to include a larger part of our neighborhood. It was so impactful to learn more about each other‘s families. Now we have names to faces we see almost every day. Stephen S., Ashburn
