Elk Grove Block Party
We live in a society today where people don’t even take the time to say hello to their neighbors, much less, get to know them.
Did you know that getting to know your neighbors may reduce crime? It’s true. A good neighbor may be one of your best tools for protecting your real property, personal property and the lives of those you hold dear.
A great way to get your neighbors together and begin discussing how to look out for one another is to plan a block party and have lots of good food and fun.
