GUEST SPEAKERS:
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”
