During the shelter-in-place times, we checked in with each other often.
We offered to shop for the older neighbors and brought food to a neighbor who seemed to have a mild case of the virus (finally recovered, tg).
We have held a Happy Hour Dance Party in Place Friday evenings, which has been lovely!
And of course, making ubiquitous sourdough starter and sharing that. I made sourdough banana bread with peanut butter chips and chocolate which was out of this world.
Other neighbors organized "stuffed animal hunts" for
families on walks, where they put stuffed animals by their window to be visible from the street for kids to spot.
Being part of this micro-community has been a source of tremendous comfort. I hope everyone finds a connection within new (or old) circles.
