I was thrilled to see a sign at the entrance to the sub last week announcing that there would be an ice cream social in the neighborhood. As far as I know, there have been no similar events here in years.
It turns out there are lots of kids here, and we are not alone in being somewhat surprised about that. We met a lot of families last night and heard a lot of neighbors saying to one another, "Hi, I'm so-and-so. I live across the street from you." It seems a lot of neighbors are eager to connect more. Last night seemed like a great step forward!
