ENJOY THE PHOTOGRAPHS OF NEIGHBORHOODS DAY 2013
START EARLY/REGISTER EARLY: The more time you can devote to planning, the
better it will be. The registration deadline is June 30, so if you are interested,
register on our website,
www.arisedetroit.org, or by hard copy as soon as possible!
GET YOUR NEIGHBORS INVOVLED/COLLABORATE WITH OTHER ORGANIZATIONS: Don’t try
to do to much by yourself. Contact your neighbors, churches, community organizations
that you have relationships with and ask them to be part of your event.
BUILD IN SUCCESS: If you are trying to attract a certain number of people,
why not get a commitment from a church group, social organization or block club
to have on of their events – and send their supporters – to your event. That way
you have a guaranteed audience in addition to whomever else you might attract.
DO COMMUNITY/MEDIA OUTREACH: If you can, develop flyers and do an email campaign
in your neighborhood. Get your information published in local church bulletins.
Send press releases about your event to local media. Also send them to ARISE Detroit!
so we can help publicize your event.
DON’T REINVENT THE WHEEL: If you already have a program or activity that
you are already doing each summer or fall, such as feeding the homeless each Saturday,
or a back-to-school event just plug that program into Neighborhoods Day.
LARGE OR SMALL IS GOOD: Don’t feel compelled to have a huge event if it doesn’t
fit your budget or resources; Do what works best for you. You can do a neighborhood
Lemonade stand if you wish, just something to show you care.
NEED HELP WITH VENDORS? Each group determines its own vendor procedures,
but ARISE Detroit! will assist in identifying vendors if you wish. Call us at 313-921-1955
or email at email@example.com.
HAVE A RAIN PLAN: Neighborhoods Day will be a great event, rain or shine,
but if it rains have a backup plan – date or indoor location – for your activity.
