We just purchased a house and will be moving into it in the next month or so (depending on closing and how long it takes to make some necessary repairs/upgrades. All this has me thinking about good ways to get to know my new neighbors. Of course I went to the internet to find some ways of getting to know the neighborhood. Most of the suggestions were all about joining clubs, groups, etc. Yea… I work two jobs. That’s not going to happen. Many suggestions were geared to big building apartment living, not suburban neighborhoods.
Here are some suggestions which seem more practicable to me:
- Hang out in the front yard to hopefully see my new neighbors in passing and take the opportunity to introduce myself.
- Take something over to a neighbor’s house and introduce myself.
- Host a neighborhood cocktail party.
- Host a BBQ for my new neighbors.
Any one out there have any good ideas and/or suggestions?
