Plan a progressive dinner!

Every house makes one small appetizer and neighbors travel around the block for a filling and engaging meal. PPNA’s Equipment Library has equipment like tables, chairs and drink warmers to support your event.


2. Share Tools & Chores

Doing chores and maintenance is more fun with friends. Swap chores like painting or yard work with neighbors, get them done faster and have more fun.
