Neighborday Party in Mar Vista
LOCATION: 12418 Pacific Ave. No. 4, Mar Vista 90066
Did you know April 27 is Neighborday? It's a made-up holiday promoted by GOOD.is, the community platform for "pragmatic idealists." On Neighborday, folks will get to know their neighbors at small events like a potluck or street clean-up, and large ones, organized by universities and nonprofits.
New Transition members Cameron and Juliet are inviting their neighbors (that's us!) to a gathering at their house for a Neighborday party. They suggest bringing a hand-drawn map of your local neighborhood. "Don’t be intimidated," urges Cameron. "Whether it’s five minutes of scribbles on a napkin or a cartographic masterpiece, we just want a glimpse into your favorite neighborhood spots. Have fun. No rules. Let Loose."
Sounds like our kind of Neighborday!
