Community Building Tip: Gathering

In today's fragmented world, people can improve it by reaching out to each other. Here are some ideas for building community in your neighborhood.

Host a regular monthly gathering, same time, no RSVP needed. Years ago I read in Sunset Magazine (unfortunately, the article does not appear to be archived online) about a woman who hosted a monthly soup social at her house. The idea was simple: she provided the soup, neighbors would bring a baguette or drink to share, and their own bowl. And, this was key…it was the same time every month and no RSVP was necessary. A regular gathering that requires no commitment and little forethought makes for an easygoing gathering.
