Residents planning socially distanced summer event for June 20

Event asks families to stay at home but get outside

Posted

The afternoon of June 20, Arvada residents are planning to celebrate the beginning of summer by coming together while staying at home.

Resident Connie Morgan has organized for families to come outside en masse during the afternoon hours of June 20, either camping out on their curb, driveway, porch or lawn. Through the event advertised in Morgan’s post on the Arvada Neighbors Facebook page, families have been encouraged to set up chairs, play games or otherwise get outdoors to help Arvadans feel more connected.

Morgan has also asked residents to find ways to engage those who are lonely, for instance, those who live alone, and make sure they know about and can participate in the event.

All Arvada families have been invited to participate, with Morgan hoping residents across the city will join in.

“I am getting a great response; people are excited about it,” Morgan said. “Let’s start summer out with kindness.”
