WIPB’s Be My Neighbor Day 2016
Won’t You Be Our Neighbor?
UPDATE: More than 2,000 neighbors participated in this year’s Be My Neighbor Day! Thanks to all of the community sponsors, community booths, community performers and, of course, community members (families and kids) who came out to the Muncie YMCA for a beautiful day in the neighborhood! Check out the photos and more on our WIPB Facebook page.
Join WIPB at our second annual Be My Neighbor Day on Saturday, Sept. 10, at Canan Commons in downtown Muncie. The free family event, set for 1 to 4 p.m., will include an appearance by none other than DANIEL TIGER, star of DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD.
Music will be provided by Ruditoonz. MITS will provide an Neighborhood Trolley for kids to explore.
At the heart of this event is the importance of being neighborly. So why not learn about some of our community’s greatest neighbors?
A map will lead children through the streets of a very special neighborhood, where they will meet people from community centers, arts organizations, charity groups and much more. At each booth, kids will be able to participate in fun activities, many designed to show the importance of being a good neighbor. Parents and caregivers will discover ways to give back, from volunteer opportunities to supporting local arts and culture. Once the maps are completed, kids will be able to claim their Good Neighbor awards!
So, see you soon, neighbors!
