MEET MAUMELLE Community Block Parties

MEET MAUMELLE Community Block Parties

7 REASONS TO HAVE A BLOCK PARTY

• To provide an opportunity to know your neighbors and where they live.

• To increase a sense of belonging within your community.

• To learn a little about each other and know who might need a little extra help from time totime.

• To meet neighbors on your block and the skills you offer one another. You might be able to help each other out with a gardening problem, or lend each other needed ingredients for a recipe.

• To help with safety/crime prevention by knowing who lives around you.

• To develop an opportunity to meet some of the older neighbors and learn about your community’s history.

• To have fun-no excuses or reasons are needed to celebrate.

 

PLANNING YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD BLOCK PARTY

Things to consider when organizing your event.

 

1) GETTING STARTED

• The idea of a neighborhood block party is to bring neighbors together. It’s a good idea to find 1 or 2 neighbors to help you with the event.

• One can take the “Lone Ranger” approach, and it can be a great event. However, it may make it more difficult to find someone else to organize it next year.

• If this is the first time you may want to send out a flyer to explain what a Block Party is, encourage attendance, perhaps share some of the benefits, get opinions on how to handle the food, and possible start times.

• Enlist as many neighbors as you can to help out. Someone can type the flyer; someone else can collect them. You may want to ask some kids to drop the flyers in the mailboxes.

 

2) TYPES OF BLOCK PARTIES

Which type of block party will work best in your neighborhood? Try not to go overboard, it can make people feel the event is too much work…Keep It Simple!

• Barbecues- organizers purchase all that is needed and neighbors provide the money; or everyone brings his or her own meat.

• Picnics- everyone brings their own meal

• Pot Luck- everyone brings one dish

• Catered- everyone shares the cost and the food is purchased.

 

3) HOW BIG TO MAKE IT

• Start off with a smaller event rather than a large one. It can always grow, but it is hard to shrink it.

• In selecting who to invite, use natural neighborhood boundaries where possible (i.e. end of the block). If you are planning a street or cul-de-sac party, you need to invite everyone from that area.

• Decide early and make it clear in your flyer if this will be a block party restricted to those on the street/block or whether people can invite friends/relatives (if yes, how many).

 

4) LOCATION

• A neighbor’s backyard

• House

• Garage (rainout)

• Common Room in a condo unit

• Alley

• Street

• Park

 

5) GETTING THE WORD OUT

It is important to keep neighbors informed. Here are some ideas:

• Flyers can be used with a request to put their put their suggestions for the event in your mailbox.

• Information can be gathered form your neighbors by going door-to-door. This adds a personal touch and people often offer to help.

• A casual approach can be used to inform neighbors as you see them out in yards.

• Neighbors can be called on the phone.

• Make an extra effort to get your new neighbors out to the event.

• To reach neighbors in Townhouses, apartments and condos, it is best to approach the manager. They will let you know how to get in touch with the residents.

• Take every opportunity to talk it up in the neighborhood as often as possible prior to the

event.

 

6) ROLE OF THE ORGANIZERS

• Make decisions about the set up.

• Act as a greeter a the event.

• Introduce new neighbors and help them make connections.

• Make sure the clean-up is done. (You may wish to inspire clean up by rewarding the children with a prize.)

• Publish your location and start time on the webpage.

 

7) SET UP

• Set up a sign-in book for records for the next year, and it can help develop a contact list for the neighborhood.

• Name tags can be a great help.

• Decide what you want neighbors to write on their name tags (e.g. first and last names, house numbers, etc)

• Line up tables for food and have a few garbage cans available.

• Decide whether you will coordinate or everyone will bring their own tables and chairs, plates, cutlery, cups and beverages. If using barbecues, who will bring them?

• Institute a bathroom policy “everyone to use his or her own”, so that home security is maintained.

• Decide if pets are allowed.

• Be ready to oversee the clean up after the event.

 

8) ACTIVITIES DURING THE EVENT

What should we do during the event?

• Visit and eat. Over the centuries, food has always had a very social component in societies.

• Games for kids (some organized, some they can plan themselves).

• Take time to introduce one another and point to one’s house. This can be done in a gameformat.

• Encourage the talent in your neighborhood to come forward such as musicians, magicians,etc.

 

9) FINAL REMINDERS

• Neighbors should observe security precautions by keeping back doors locked and equipment in sight.

• Remember when setting up tables and chairs that emergency vehicles may need access your area. Street closure is not permitted.   

• You may wish to post signs the day before the event to remind everyone to remove cars for the event. 

• Please be mindful of all City Ordinances regarding noise.

#MaumelleCleanUp  #MyMaumelle  


About the Great Arkansas Cleanup 

The Great Arkansas Cleanup grew out of an effort that began more than 40 years ago as the Greers Ferry Lake and Little Red River Cleanup. In 1985, U.S. Sen. Dale Bumpers guided legislation requiring an annual pickup event during the weekend after Labor Day on all federal lands. This law, the Carl Garner Federal Lands Cleanup Act, honors the founder of the event. Mr. Garner continued his advocacy for a clean and litter-free environment as a member of the Keep Arkansas Beautiful Foundation board of directors until his passing in 2014. KAB organized the first statewide GAC in 1989.

About Keep Arkansas Beautiful 

The Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commission (KAB), consisting of a professional staff of three and a nine-member advisory board appointed by the governor, is a division of the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism. As a certified state affiliate of Keep America Beautiful Inc., KAB inspires and educates indviduals to reduce litter, recycle and keep Arkansas beautiful. KAB is funded through its 1 percent portion of the eighth-cent Conservation Tax and, by mobilizing volunteers, returns to the state a cost benefit of more than $6 in community service for each program dollar spent
