Attend Community Events

 To get to know your neighbors and others in your community, attend community events. We don't only mean political events like town and school board meetings, but also community dinners, art shows, plays and school events!

  • Attend town/city council meetings.
  • Go to school board meetings.
    • Go to your school’s website or the school to find out when and where your school board meetings are.
  • Enjoy community dinners or suppers like potlucks at local churches!
  • Attend school events like a football game, a tennis match, a play, or a student art show!
  • Check out local community event calendars that include art shows, music and theater performances, lectures, discussions, festivals and fairs!
