On July 10, Central Parish members will be hosting porch parties all over the parish! You can join in the fun by hosting friends and neighbors on your porch (or in your front or back yard) on that day, too.
Sometimes having people over can be something intimidating. We all want to do it, but all the little tasks can seem overwhelming. Porch Parties are all play and no work - all you have to do for a porch party is sweep your porch, maybe set out a few extra chairs, and invite your neighbors. A bag of chips, a bowl of salsa and growler from your favorite local brewery can make for a great, easy afternoon or evening. Don’t be surprised if your new friends hang around for quite awhile . . . there is something magical about being outside in porch weather.
The City Gallery's porch party initiative kicked off with the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 in May and the City Gallery is continuing to promote porch parties to celebrate the Indiana Bicentennial. For Central Parish members: if you turn in a photo of your event and a short blog for us to post you will be entered to win a $250 gift certificate from the Harrison Center.
