Did you know?

That August 3rd is National Night out?

Do you have plans? Have you participated before?
Last year I made lemon bars and delivered small plates of them for a few of my neighbors. Basically just talked to each for 5-10 mins. My kids tossed a football and we watched another neighbors kids put on a puppet show.
This year we're going to make zucchini chocolate chip cookies to share.

I'm curious how many cafe moms will participate.

  • I have never participated ever before. I feel like I do and do for others but get nothing in return. It's not like my neighbors do anything special for us. I've had a hysterectomy, carpal tunnel surgery and dh has had major back surgery in the 5 1/2 yrs we have lived here and not once has anyone come over to help offer food anything. I used to do a lot for people but then when no one would help me in our time of need I just kind of stopped. I hope for who ever does do this they feel good about doing it though.

  • I never knew about it. Though it won't change anything for me, we'll just be sitting at home watching a movie or soemthing.

  • I'm sorry moms_angels. That's sad. We have an elderly man across the street from us who we go over and help with yard work and misc stuff. He has meals delivered. I always felt we should help our neighbors whenever we can.... If you lived by me I'd bring you a meal and a dessert!

    The program is supposed to be to help fight crime and raise awareness to would-be criminals that neighbors ARE looking out for each other. So to all - go out get to know your neighbors and hopefully by doing so, if they see something suspicious they will look out for you. Plus its always nice to make new friends.
