River Bluffs Drop on By Club â€“ June 9th through July 5th.
Please feel Free and Welcome to stop by any home that has this blue and green flag in the yard. These five houses are the pilot group of the River Bluffs Stop on By Club which currently has 20 members.
The members of the Drop on By Club are looking to embrace the satisfying times reported in media articles that described the findings of studies on how the informal social neighborhood networks of past centuries provided a sense of contentment and interrelations within neighborhoods. They noted the health benefits of reduced stress and mental stimulation. The club developed a flag for members to fly when they are ready to welcome people to drop by for conversation, relaxation and maybe a cup of coffee or tea. A main concept is the informal spur of the moment connections.
The purpose of the pilot is to gather ideas and suggestions over the next several weeks in efforts to then better define the goals the club and expand activities to all club members. Feel free to get on the Portal and join the club. However, donâ€™t feel like you need to be a club member to drop by any house flying the flag. Just come and say â€œHiâ€.
