The other day as I was heading out of our street I spotted a small yellow sign advertising a community “meet and greet” at our local swimming pool. I decided that it would be a good opportunity to see some of our neighbors, so I made plans to attend. Unfortunately, it turned out to be more of a “meet and beat” with complaints overriding any socializing.
The meeting included residents from our greater neighborhood, bounded by the four major streets. There was one neighbor from our street, and a good friend from several blocks away. In all, about 25 people gathered.
