I live in a great neighborhood. We have families of all kinds.........families with children, older retired couples, DINKS (double income no kids)........but they are all friendly and nice. The kind of people who will pick up your newspaper and put it on your porch when you are out of town or mow your lawn when you are on vacation or bring you food when you have a baby.
In this day and age - we are all so busy. It's easy to hibernate and come home from work and just stay in your house and be your own little island. But I love the feeling of community. I love the summer when the kids all play out in the street and the parents sit in lawn chairs in the driveways and watch the kids play and visit. I love neighborhood cook outs and Halloween parties.
What is your favorite thing about your neighborhood? I'd love to hear about it.
So would Dreyer’s (for those on you on the west coast and in Texas) and Edy’s for those of you East of the Rockies! Share why your neighborhood is so special and nominate your neighborhood for one of 1500 Dreyers/Edy's slow churned neighborhood salutes ice cream parties at www.SlowChurned.com. You must enter by midnight on May 29th.
Each winning neighborhood will scoop up a doorstep delivery of Dreyer's/Edy’s® Slow Churned® Light ice cream (with half the fat than regular ice cream, Slow Churned® gives neighbors even more reason to celebrate!). The package includes all of the fixings (cups, bowls, scoops, etc. and of course, ice cream, to host a summer block party for up to 100 guests.)
Whether you know of neighbors in need, are hoping to “mend some fences,” or are simply looking for an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate strong neighborly bonds, hosting a Dreyer's/Edy’s® Slow Churned® Neighborhood Salute can both spark and strengthen camaraderie on your block.
And let me sweeten the deal..........................10 of you who share your favorite neighborhood tales below will get a coupon for a free 1.5 quart of Edy's slow churned ice cream. How good does that sound as the hot weather is here????
