WIPB’s Be My Neighbor Day 2018
Won’t You Be Our Neighbor?
UPDATE 9/8/18: BE MY NEIGHBOR DAY is MOVING INSIDE!
The rain cannot stop us from having a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Join us Saturday, Sept. 8 inside the YMCA, right across the street from Canan Commons at 500 S. Mulberry St. A big UGGA MUGGA to the YMCA of Muncie for being such a GRR-rific neighbor!
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.
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!
