We wanted to make a community of our little slice of Greece but people did not know each other. Nothing to do but to have a big party! Our local fire station sent over a fire truck and rescue truck and the Monroe County Sheriffs Department sent over 2 horses and officers. The kids were able to climb in the firetruck and pet the horses. While adults mingled and BBQed, the kids ran between 2 bounce houses and enjoyed the thrill of riding up and down the middle of the street.
The difference in the feel of our street is already tangible. It is hopefully the start of a great tradition.
