You’ve probably heard the term social capital. It’s a new name for the old idea of contributing to your locale or wherever you find yourself– your neighbourhood, clubs or the church where you belong. I feel the benefit of doing nice things for others or just engaging them in friendly conversation is the way to get along better. Yesterday we hosted a Christmas Brunch at our house. Old neighbors (from Soaring Hawk) and new neighbors (on Nighthawk) and friends from church stayed most of the day! My husband Gerry and I were exhausted but knew our efforts were worth it. Neighborhoods function better when people know each other. It’s easier to work out problems between friends.
We served crepes, quiches, frittatas, fruit salad, coffee, tea, orange juice and an assortment of holiday quick breads. Daughter Janice made the crepes!
