On one of the hottest days of the summer, more than a dozen block club leaders hosted block parties to build community. Streets were blocked off, grills were fired up, games and music were enjoyed by all. It was a festive evening of gathering together and celebrating.

Our Lighthouse Network provided many of the resources to make the night a success – starting with coordinating street closures, to flyers for marketing, to tables, and hot dogs and buns and lemonade. Neighbors all pitched in with dishes from around the world to make the night one to remember.
