Do you know your next door neighbor?

Do you know your next door neighbor?

My husband and I recently moved to a new neighborhood. We soon realized that we did not know anyone in the neighborhood, let alone, our next door neighbors.

Recently that all changed when we received an invitation to join the ‘Next Door’ network specifically for our subdivision. Within a very short period of time approximately 100 homes out of about 150 were participating in on Next Door.

From this involvement and getting to know the neighbors some sub groups have been formed. There is the Fun Club which is really a ‘Girls’ night out group, a Book Club, walkers, and even some motorcycle riders.

My husband recently told me that since becoming involved with Next Door, he feels more part of the community and the level of enjoyment of living in our new house has increased by leaps and bounds.

A group of over 40 Next Door neighbors recently met at a local restaurant, owned by one of the residents for dinner. I am in the white jacket enjoying good conversation and libations.
