Round Robins ... or building community in the neighborhood

In what has turned out to be a very successful and pleasant way to foster a sense of community, Spruce Park neighbors have been gathering for conversation and food at “Round Robin” tapas parties. 

In groups of 8 to 10, at rotating host houses, we spend a couple of hours getting to know each other, over savories, desserts and drinks. Here is how Round Robins work:

  • Roughly monthly, email announcements are sent to all who have signed up to be on the mailing list.
  • On receipt of an email invitation, you RSVP the convener with name(s) and number attending. Kids are welcome. If there is interest, we can direct them all to one house, so they can play while we chat!
  • Convener assembles respondents into small groups, aiming for representation across the blocks, etc.
  • About 3 days before the event, emails are sent with the address of your party and a food assignment.
  • Dates remaining for 2017 are: Oct. 26, Nov. 30.
