Helping Neighbors Connect With Each Other

Hi, Leslie Harris here, and the City of Elgin has come up with a fantastic idea. They’re calling it Block Party in a Box, and it’s to help people connect with their neighbors.

Basically, you get a trailer from the city, and it has everything you need to get started including tables, chairs, Pop up tents, entertainment and yard games, barricades and safety signs. It’s free to reserve and the City will even drop it off and pick it up.

I think this is a great idea, and I hope more towns in our area embrace this idea. Throwing a party can be overwhelming, but this makes it so easy! You can find out about Elgin’s block party in a box HERE
