Peace Day

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on September 21st. “Peace Day” is a day “devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.” We encourage neighbors to honor Peace Day in their own special way by choosing to participate in peaceful actions in our very own Morris Hill neighborhood. Whether it be by saying a kind word to your neighbor, helping a neighbor in need, sending a blessing or positive thought to the neighbors who surround you, or perhaps, by lighting a candle in honor of a day that encourages all of us to think before we act and choose peace above all. “Be the change you wish to see” in your neighborhood!

Halloween is a Neighborhood Holiday

“Few holidays can bring neighbors together like Halloween. Halloween is the perfect chance to meet new neighbors or reconnect with old friends around the neighborhood that you haven’t seen in a while…Because Halloween is a fun holiday that centers around activities, it’s more social than other holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving which are usually associated with formal meals and family visits.” This Halloween, we encourage you to unite with your fellow neighbors and make it a festive evening! You can read more about celebrating Halloween in neighborhoods at the following link:
