Ice cream block party
Someone on our block won the Dreyers Slow Churned Neighborhood Salute Ice Cream Block Party. So this afternoon, we all got together and ate ice cream. It would have been more clever if I took photos.
A Dreyer's press release stated that the 1,500 winners were chosen out of more than 15,500 entries. The company cited two recent studies that it said "underscore that gatherings such as block parties are ideal opportunities to build awareness, safety networks and increase confidence and connections among neigbhors.
List of winners
I hope that this will inspire us to host a carport potluck sometime in October or November. Perhaps February...
The biggest surprise: the number of kids that live on our street.
