Can a simple hello change the nature of a neighborhood? When it comes with BBQ, live music and a water park—it’s almost certain. To celebrate Memorial Day, Glass House Collective opened its headquarters and a vacant adjacent lot to the community. Residents organized family activities, entertainment, and a few local vendors and informational booths popped up, too. Initially planned to celebrate the launch of a 10-week business planning course held in headquarters, the event turned into something much larger: a chance for neighborhood kids to cut loose, for families to come together and for neighbors to really say hello.
Attracted over 45 neighbors
enrolled 13 attendees in the Launch Business Planning Course
2 residents performed live jazz
