Do you wish you knew your neighbors better? If you know the names of your neighbors' dogs better than their owner's names, you might want to go to your local National Night Out event. You can meet and greet your neighbors and maybe their pets, too!
National Night Out features fun, food and friendly neighbors with a focus on building connections among residents. That works wonders to reduce crime! To find an event near you, check out the list of NNO events in Everett. Volunteers who help that evening will meet even more neighbors and may find some new friends!
Looking for ways to connect with folks in your neighborhood?
Walk the dog, stop and chat, admire neighbors' gardens and landscapes, invite neighbors to a potluck, put on a chalk art contest for kids on your block, create a tool bank to share tools among neighbors, invite people to swap recipes or plants. Find common ground, start a conversation, get curious about who your neighbors are and learn about their interests. Smile. Everett's a good place to be.
