Join us for our April General Meeting on Thurs., Apr. 25, 2019, at 6:30pm at the CK Newsome Community Center, 100 Walnut St., Evansville.

Building a great neighborhood that creates dynamic gatherings, vital relationships and essential impact within the greater community

Panelists from Several Neighborhoods

“At their best, neighborhoods function as villages, in which residents’ lives overlap in positive ways. We look out for one another and share a public life in common. Everyone who wants to change the world, or simply make improvements in their own lives, is well advised to sit down with the neighbors and work together to make their dreams come true. You’ll be surprised what can be accomplished if you are willing to think big about your little place in the world.”
— Jay Walljasper in “The Great Neighborhood Book”


Working together to preserve, enhance and promote the Evansville and area Neighborhoods
