New Event Calendar

I’m kind of a visual person, I need to see the calendar in month view to make sure I’m not double-booking event on a day that another person has an event planned. Even though we have nextdoor events, not everyone is posting their events for the neighborhood on it and that in general is an issue. I think that someone may be posting events on a facebook page somewhere but I’m not privy to that information.

For the moment, if you have an event and you would like us to post it on the website, please use the contact page and send us details

As soon as possible, within a few months (planned date: 1/5/17) we will setup the login for you to post your own events here. The app costs money, so we need to get it rolling on a paying site first

And we encourage you to use nextdoor for your events as well, we will be putting them on this calendar as they popped up.

Thanks

Usually, horseflies try to bite horses and cattle, but they are also known to bite other animals, including humans. Some areas are known to have a lot of horseflies, which can make outdoor recreation completely miserable….

Little Things – Urban Exploration

Block Party Costs

While we absolutely love bringing the neighbors together for fun in the sun, hot dogs, jumpy houses, games and just generally getting to know each other, these events aren’t cheap to put together even with the lovely support of the Bridge Church. For 2017’s event, we will be starting a gofund me account to generate some funds to continue having these events. We would love to invite food trucks or animal petting zoos or more block party types of things for the future but these kind of things cost money too

Lonely Neighbor Faces $3K A Day In Violations, Then Catches A Couple Secretly Fixing Her House

Many young couples spend their summer camping, or kayaking, or relaxing or vacationing. But Kristin and Adam Polhemus did none of these things. Instead, the married couple from Hamilton Township, New Jersey spent their summer fixing up the run-down house next door.
