How to Get Involved & Meet People in the Community
Engage in Small Talk-- Don’t be afraid to strike up small conversations with people you meet. Ask about their interests, hobbies, or if they’ve tried any of the local restaurants. You may have something in common and start a new friendship!
Host a gathering--Invite your neighbors over for a BBQ or movie night. It’s a great way to get to know each other and bond over food and good times.
Join a club or group-- Joining a group is a great way to meet people who share similar interests.
Be a good neighbor-- Help your neighbors out if they need assistance with something such as mowing their lawn or taking out their trash. Small acts of kindness go a long way in building relationships with those around you.
Remember that making new friends takes time and effort, but it’s worth it to have a strong and supportive community. So, keep an open mind, be friendly, and get involved!
