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.
