Neighbour Day: Saturday June 20, 2020: Connect, make new friends, have fun and foster community among your neighbours this neighbour day!
Introduce yourself to a new neighbour: A positive outcome of the current Covid-19 Crisis has been neighbours spending more time connecting with each other! This Neighbour Day, why not try and connect with neighbours you don’t know so well? The City has created a PDF template, which you can download and print, to help you introduce yourself while practicing physical distancing.
Organize a “Physically Distant” visit: As long as the people from each home keep 6m apart and don’t share food or beverages, there is nothing to stop up to 50 people gathering outside.
Join the City Wide Scavenger Hunt: The City of Calgary in partnership with the Federation of Calgary Communities is also encouraging as many people as possible to join in on the Neighbour Day Scavenger Hunt! The hunt can be done indoors, or outdoors. You could challenge your neighbours to complete as many tasks as possible within a set time. Learn more at calgary.ca/NeighbourDay.
Make a Calgary Food Bank Donation: Hailey is organizing a Food Drive for the Calgary Food Bank. She will be in the SACA Parking Lot from Noon to 5pm on Saturday June 20 to receive your donations of non-perishable food and/or a cheque made payable to Calgary Food Bank. Can make it on Saturday? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for curb side pick up.
Show us how you celebrated: Whatever you do this Neighbour Day, don’t forget to share your experiences on social media using the hashtag #yycNeighbourDay. You can message them to one of SACA’s Social Media Platforms (FaceBook, Insta, Twitter) or email them to email@example.com
