Next Saturday, Feb. 8, is Seattle’s 20th annual Neighbor Appreciation Day, a special day when you’re encouraged to reach out to neighbors old and new and celebrate what makes your neighborhood special.
The day was the brainchild of Phinney Ridge resident Judith Wood. Thanks, Judith!
Here are ways you can celebrate Neighbor Appreciation Day:
- Plan an activity for your neighborhood such as a block party, potluck, or work party. Our website provides ideas, tools, resources, and templates to help you organize an activity. Once scheduled, you can post your event to the events calendar.
- Attend one of the many community activities listed on the events calendar. Many Seattle Fire stations along with pools, parks, and neighborhoods are hosting celebrations and work parties.
- Send Neighbor Appreciation Day e-cards to your neighbors.
- Share a story or two about your favorite neighbors. You can post stories about great neighbors or neighborhoods on our website, or post it to our Facebook page.
Join Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and thousands of community members in celebration of what makes Seattle great – our neighbors!
In our neighborhood, Fire Station 21 at 7304 Greenwood Ave. N. is hosting an open house at 11 a.m. on Feb. 8.
