Neighborhood Barbecue

As much as it may seem like the Winthrop Estate is a world apart from a reality of the Lenox community, the owners and staff members work hard to plan community family events to encourage cohesion and friendship within our neighborhood.  For example, a couple weeks ago the Winthrop Estate hosted a neighborhood barbecue for the families of Yokun Avenue and Cliffwood Street.  The potluck event was a wonderful success with over 200 guests, yard games and plenty of food.  A friendly volleyball tournament even took place and lasted until a lack of sunlight forced the kids to switch to a game of flashlight tag.  Happy with the community building experience, I have started to think of new neighborhood events.  Any good ideas?
