The top 10 reasons to organize a Neighbourhood Block Party

  1. To have fun, with no excuses or reasons needed to celebrate!
  2. To meet your neighbours. Knowing who lives in your neighbourhood will help improve safety and prevent crime.
  3. To establish a sense of belonging to the community.
  4. Neighbours who know each other, look out for one another.
  5. To meet neighbours on your block who you might be able to exchange skills or resources with (baby-sitting co-op, book club, walking to school duties, new friends for you and your children, personal networking).
  6. To encourage neighbours to look after the neighbourhood and strengthen community spirit.
  7. To learn a little about each other and determine who might need a little extra help from time to time.
  8. To have the chance to meet some of the long-time neighbourhood residents and learn about your community history.
  9. To have a good reason to have a neighbourhood clean-up day and barbecue once all the work is done.
  10. To start a tradition of getting together at least once a year!
