At our annual BBQ and Potluck we promote community togetherness for residents of all ages to get to know one another. This years attendance had residents of all ages with our youngest being a 3 month old.
We ask everyone to bring a food item to contribute, This is a great conversation starter as people ask who brought the various dishes, the family stories behind the dishes and recipe exchanges. And as we have done in the past years, we encourage people to bring their own plates and cutlery as part of the reuse, reduce, recycle aspect.
In addition to the BBQ, this year we did painting on canvas. A very popular activity as a lot of people painted a small picture to show their creative side. The young were helping the old and vice versa. It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves.

We believe the best people to effect change in a community are the ones within it. And when we can make money less of an issue in doing so, it allows so many more kinds of ideas to shine.
