Neighbor Appreciation Day

Celebrate Seattle’s 16th annual Neighbor Appreciation Day, a special day to reach out to neighbors, create new bonds and express thanks to those who help make your neighborhood a great place to live. Community organizations, businesses and residents across Seattle come together on February 6 (and the week of) to celebrate this day.

There are three ways you can participate:
· Organize a neighborhood event such as a block party, open house, potluck, or work party to celebrate the day. If planning an event, contact Wendy Watson at wendy.watson@seattle.gov (206-684-0719) and tell us about it. To post your event to our online calendar, visit www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/calendar, hit the link for "Submit an Event" and complete the form. (Be sure to select “Neighbor Appreciation Day” under the section called DON Programs.)

· Use our FREE Neighbor Appreciation Day greeting cards to acknowledge your neighbors. The cards feature winning artwork from the annual Neighbor Appreciation Day Student Art Contest. You can either send an e-card by going to www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/appday or pick up cards at one of the Neighborhood Service Centers, community centers, or libraries, as well as Seattle City Hall and Seattle Department of Neighborhoods office.

· Attend one of the many community activities listed on our online calendar. Visit www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/appday for a list of special Neighbor Appreciation Day events.

Join Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and the thousands of community members across our city in celebration of what makes Seattle great – our neighbors! For information, visit www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/appday.
