Research shows that people now have less contact with their neighbors than in the past which can lead to loneliness and isolation. The Windsor Severance area is growing at a rapid rate which means neighborhoods are growning and people do not know their neighbors. Rotary Club of Windsor has purchased a trailer and stocked it with yard games, tables, a canopy, and other supplies that can be used for a block party or neighborhood get-together. There is no charge to use the trailer. A Rotary member will bring it to your house and pick it up the day after the party.
The Windsor Rotary Club worked with the Severance and Windsor Police Departments to check on the laws and regulations concerning block parties. Both police departments were on board and supportive of the idea.
The purchase of the trailer, branding it and stocking it some of the basic items was $3916.
The trailer can be booked online at the Windsor Rotary Club website.https://www.rotaryclubofwindsor.org/neighborhood-connect.html
The club would like to add additional items which homeowners might not own in order to make the contents of the trailer more useful and exciting for users. We would also like to advertise the trailer through Facebook promotions. We plan to support a block party organized by one of our members in order to get some photos and positive comments about the usefulness of the trailer.
We believe that the trailer will help introduce people to their neighbors and build connections and a stronger community.
