IT'S TIME TO WAKE UP THE COMMUNITY!!by josetta turner on 02/06/18
Start with something fun and get everyone involved. Ask your neighbors to participate in a Talent Show! Children and Adults. Afterwards having a Taco and burrito feast. You may post flyers asking for interested parties to audition and pick a committee to help choose participants. Your community members can pick the winners by applauding the most. The event can be held in your community center or outside if weather permits. Hold this event on the week end and asking those who can bring a dish that can be used to make tacos and burritos plus the garnishments. Or take up a collection and select a team that will put the items together and lay out on a long table. Allow people to add what they want to their treat. Buying water and juice no sodas, not healthy. A couple of you from the community can start this off. Once you do an event it becomes easier and more people will want to get involved. Don't get cold feet, talking to people is not hard. Be to the point but courteous, be understanding if someone says no. You may explain how this type of activity can bring your community together. I will post more ideas of fun stuff bringing your community together. Also you can call your local radio station and ask that they announce your event. There is weekly announcements of neighborhood activities, in most cities. Normally there is no cost for this service. Invite your councilman or woman, even the Mayor. Call his office, extend an invitation. Take plenty of pictures so they can be posted for all to see. ENJOY!
